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 112004

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


Severe shimmy at speeds above 30 mph. Car is two years old with 18K and has only been serviced by the dealer. Was told by dealer that it needed tires rebalanced. Had tires rebalanced at 18,197 miles. 21K problem got worse, was told by dealer Goodyear tires were no good and needed brake rotors turned. Pads were fine, metallic pads cause rotor warpage in just a few miles. Repair estimate on a two year old car is $495. No warranty on brakes or factory tires.
