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.

The front frame that holds engine, struts, brakes, steering are rotted out from rust causing major issues and possible injuries and death !!!!!!!!!!! Chrysler knows of these issues and wont do anything to remedy the problem.

Neon 4-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
I was leaving the parking lot Sunday and something snapped. I got out of the car and checked the front end and one wheel was one way and other was the other direction! looked underneath and saw that the ball broke out of the socket. If that would of happened on the freeway, I would be dead or severely injured.

The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Neon. While driving 30 mph with the headlights illuminated, the fog lights suddenly illuminated without warning. The steering wheel began to emit smoke and became unusually hot in temperature. She was able to drive the vehicle home; however, a burning smell filled the cabin of the vehicle. The dealer was contacted and stated that either the wiring harness or the multi-function switch had failed. There were no recalls for the failure and the vehicle was not repaired when the complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 93,000 and the current mileage was 97,000.
