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

Aug 212009

Neon SE 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles

I had this car for 5 years, took care of it, didn't drive like a maniac, and one day, a month after I had just paid it off, I'm driving on a freeway, and my trans blows. Car wouldn't move. Had to have entrie trans rebuilt, even the casing had to be replaced. Two grand and three months later, my trans blows AGAIN. Mechanic said it was due to it overheating. whatever, basically the car couldn't handle going over 60 mph anymore. Anyways, ended up trading it in for a honda.

* If you have this car, INSTALL A COOLING SYSTEM FOR YOUR TRANSMISSION!!!! seriously, it costs around $60 bucks, and it will keep your trans going for a lot longer. good luck!
