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

problem #1

Aug 202006

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,351 miles


Vehicle 2002 Dodge Neon 22,351 miles on vehicle. While my wife was backing out of garage the brakes failed. Three pieces of front disk brake pads were found lying on the garage floor (still in my possession). Both front inside disk pads appeared to have broken in half. Upon checking the front brakes I found no pads in place on the left inside of the brake and only one half of the brake pad on the inside of the right brake which was still with the vehicle, obviously the rest of the pads were on the floor of my garage. My wife was shaken but thankful that she wasn't driving in traffic when the brake pads fell off the car. The vehicle had to be towed to joe cecconi"S Chrysler to have new front brakes put on the vehicle. I feel that this was either a defect in the brake pads or a faulty engineering design and because of the seriousness of the consequences that could have resulted I felt that this incident should be reported. I'm also sending a letter to Chrysler in regards to this matter.
