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.

2004 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 082010


  • 86,000 miles


My 16 year old daughter was driving her 2004 Dodge Neon on the 101 freeway near santa barbara, ca in bumper to bumper traffic. Suddenly and with no warning the brake peddle went to the floor and she had no brakes. At the same time the brake warning light went on. Because she was traveling slow she was able to exit the freeway using the emergency brake which was nearly in-effective. If she had been traveling at freeway speed she would not have been able to stop. The problem turned out to be the right rear drum brake cylinder was leaking which allowed all of the brake fluid to leak from the system.
