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.

Neon SXT 4.0L

I bought my car used from a dealer and 6 months later the alternator went bad. I had the alternator replaced under warranty but they did unauthorized repairs to my car which cost me $440. All I wanted them to do is replace the alternator. They told me that the extra charges were necessary to find the problem. Then at the end they told me that it was the alternator. Well, it's been 3 years and the alternator is bad again. I have only put on the car 45,000 miles in 3 years. My friend also has the same car and she has had the same problem.
