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 #2

Apr 032008

Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 300 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Neon. The radiator clamp fell off and caused all of the radiator fluid to leak out of the vehicle. The vehicle failed and was towed to the dealer. At 9,000 miles, the front brake pads had to be replaced and an alignment was performed. Both repairs were performed under warranty. At 15,000 miles, the tires caused the vehicle to shake when the gear was in drive. All four tires were replaced under warranty. At 18,000 miles, the brackets under the driver's seat failed and the seat could not be moved backwards or forwards. The repair was performed under warranty. Also at 18,000 miles, the dealer had to adjust the rear brakes because they were squealing and pulsating. The squealing and pulsating occurred all the time, but especially in the mornings. The contact paid for the adjustment. The cd player failed and was repaired under warranty. Currently, the rear brakes are still squealing and pulsating, and the motor mounts have failed. The motor makes a popping sound during acceleration. While driving in reverse, the motor will sink into the vehicle. The only thing supporting the motor is the exhaust. The motor is almost touching the hood of the vehicle when it is closed. He has scheduled an appointment for the motor mounts to be repaired. The current mileage was 32,764 and failure mileage was 300.

I bought a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT on December 14,2005 and just on Sunday January 8, 2006 the clamp and hose of the radiator just broke. I had my car towed to my house and then I had the car towed to the dealers on Monday. They advised me that it was that, which I noticed that day that about 6 other cars came in also the same year make and model, it was the 2005 Dodge Neon SXT line. So they replaced the part and so far it has held up but don't now for shore yet. So please pass this down in the recall that this line of car's have a hose and clamp recall thanks edward robinson.
