Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #3

Aug 062013

Neon ES 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 167,000 miles


I cant believe after just 10 minutes online I have found hundreds and possibly thousands more of these cases yet the manufacturer has done nothing about it... I wonder if they will feel that way when GM's outcome results in criminal charges and verdicts that carry some prison time !? This is clearly a design shortcut to lessen cost of MFS by not using relay system to carry current/amperage which can route current/amperage more efficiently. Im surprised the insurance companies who have to pay comprehensive coverage payment for loss caused by smoke/fire haven't done something about this...

problem #2

May 202004

Neon ES 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 90,000 miles

At first my dash started to act up, speedometer jumping all around, etc. After a few weeks the dash completely died while driving. I thought the engine died, but it was still running. When I took it in I found out that the cluster had fried itself. This also burnt the computer. $950 later it was fixed. This was only months after the warranty expired.

Neon ES 2.0L

  • Manual transmission
  • 137,000 miles

Four years ago this happened to me and I spent $950 to fix it. Now I am having it happen again at a price tag of $1000. The car blue book is at $2550 plus or minus. I had no choice but fix it. According to mechanic it has been a major problem with this car. THANKS DODGE for making a crappy sh*t car. To have the cluster replaced a second time sucks!
