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.

Had to have a jump start on the car after having front end work done on car. After jump the gauges for speed and rpm went out. they try and go in reverse direction. very hard to know how fast you are going!

The Speedo, Odo, etc. cluster does not work at all. you can't read your speed or odometer reading. My wife drives that car and she has gotten used to it but we are trying to sell and no one will buy.

All of my gauges stopped working on my way home from the dealership I bought it from. They have temporarily fixed the problem at least 4 times. My dashboard has taken a beating from how many times they have had to take it off. The last time they fixed it the gauges stayed working for a while but it seems like every time it rains or its humid out they go out again. No gas gauge, no idea how fast im going, interior lights wont work, the temp gauge... nothing. I've run out of gas, been pulled over, etc. I'm wondering if maybe there's something electrical that isn't covered. If I open up the drivers door and let it air out in nice weather they seem to work again. My friend has the same car and it does the same thing. Can't dodge fix this? It doesn't really seem safe. The car could be overheating and I wouldn't even know it.

the speedometer sticks at zero at random times sometimes it will happen twice in the same day, other times it wont happen for weeks. it's a real pain in the ass. i have a 2 year old and a new born this is a major issue for me it's just not safe to not have a functioning speedometer (this also happens to the heat gauge, so my engine could be overheating and i wouldnt know it) we have had other problems in the past with this car and the dealership just dicked us over so i'm not going back to that bunch of scam artists. supposedly the problem is a fuse of some sort mounted under the dashboard. and of course it part it's self is inexpensive what will cost us is the labor. just when i think this car couldnt get any worse it just keeps on coming. thanks dodge!
