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.

Transmission slips from 1st to 2nd gear, air condition does not get very cold, 15 miles per gallon, steering wheel starts to vibrate after 45mph, front and back brakes squeak, minor leak under driver side dash board, car starts to vibrate harshly in a drive idle at a red light, car stalls while sitting in park, car stalls while going in reverse on a very slight incline, and when ever I put down my windows, open my sun roof or ever have the air condition on, you can feel and hear the car just lose power when I do one of those things dealership told me to go to a different gas station, to solve my gas problem, come on 15mpg thats a car defect, all the other problems they told me their computer did not detect anything and they could not duplicate it and they couldnt do nothing. Called Chrysler head quarters, I might as well have called my neighbor to get help. Chrysler head quarters called dealership up and told them to hook up a co-Pilot to monitor my car for a few weeks. Went to the dealership to find out that their's did not work along with all the other Dodge dealerships. I will never buy another Dodge or Chrysler car again.. because of all these problems I am stuck paying 400 bucks a month with a 20% interest rate on a lemon car...Neons need to be taken off the road. Now I am selling the car for a lose because they can not fix or make a car the right way.
