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.

2003 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 042011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


I have replaced the transmission, new brakes around, new ball & rods, brake sensors, and still my car jerks when I apply the brake. The ABS light comes on & off randomly, I'm being told I need to replace the transmission again! I'm not believing that since I may drive 100 miles a month! I do think it's a brake problem but everyone wants to get me for yet another transmission! the transmission did need replaced only because the gasket kept wearing out causing my fluids to come out rapidly, and it had a small pin hole in the top that eventually would of caused a problem, but it shifts great, doesn't jerk while driving until the brake is applied. I'm not a mechanic but I'm not stupid either. Common sense tells me that the problem is with the brakes when it only jerks when I apply the brake, not the transmission. Has anyone else had this problem, I need to get this resolved before I get down right evil with the dealership that sold me this car.
