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.

My husband was driving home from work and he got to the driveway where we live and his back drivers side wheel locked up. We took it to a shop here in ruthven and they tried to fix it. We later had to take it to a dealer in spencer Iowa. Asher motors. It need a break kit because for some reason it had come apart and the spring was missing. And something to do with the E-brake now yesterday the same thing happened to the passengers side. I was reading up on the others that have a problem with recalls on there breaks and think the 2004 should also be looked at. I have talked with other Neon owners and they to have had similar problems. I called Dodge and they said they can look up recalls and my car has not had that problem but we can save our records and if it is a recall then we can file to be re paid back. Idk what all is involved in getting or even having a recall looked into but thought this was a good start.
