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.

2005 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

May 232008

Neon 4-cyl

  • 27,050 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Neon. While attempting to make a turn at an unknown speed, the vehicle lost all brake power. The contact was able to pull into someone's driveway and apply her emergency brake to stop the vehicle. Her boyfriend removed the tire and noticed brake fluid leaking onto the ground. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that they would have to order the parts for the repair because they could not be purchased outside of the manufacturer. The dealer repaired the brakes and other failures at the cost of $400. The failure mileage was 27,050 and current mileage was 28,008. Updated 07/07/08. The consumer stated the brake hose was installed incorrectly when the vehicle was manufacturer. The hose was the wrong size which lead to a lag in the hose which overtime rubbed and formed a hole which caused the brakes to fail. Updated
