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.

The contact owns a 2003 Dodge Neon. The contact stated that water was leaking into the trunk and mold started to grow in the vehicle as a result. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance and referred the contact to NHTSA. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were 90,000.

My daughter has a 2003 Dodge Neon and when it rains water collects in the trunk and right front floorboard. If you check out websites on complaints about Dodge Neons and their water leaks there are hundreds or more complaints from owners. This water leak does present a safety and health hazard in the form of mold collecting in a car. This defect in construction needs to be investigated. I contacted my Dodge dealer and they would not respond to me.
