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.

2002 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

Neon 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 9,800 miles


: the contact stated the plastic adjusting vent for the heat appeared to have been gnawed on, and the air coming out smelled like feces. The contact ascertained that a mouse had gotten in to the ventilation system of the vehicle through the space where the wiper post protruded through the top of the hood. The contact expressed a concern that the mouse could have chewed through the wires if given the chance. The main concern was that the vehicle was not secured from the forces of nature. The vehicle was not seen by a dealer, however the manufacturer was notified.
