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 #1

Oct 112009

Neon SE 2.0L I4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,000 miles

Less a complaint, more a warning to everybody to keep an eye on this. There was no symptom except a little noise, but both outer tie rod ends were badly worn at 106,000 miles. They are supposedly greased for life, so they can't be greased by the owner. The miles were 99% highway miles. Check yours today by firmly grabbing your front tire at the 3:00 and 9:00 positions and trying to wiggle the wheel back and forth. Any movement and you may need new tie rod ends!
