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.

I was driving to downtown los angeles with my friends and all of a sudden there is smoke coming out of my dashboard right in front of my steering wheel something was burning. I then later notice my brake, fog, high beams, and turn signals light do not work. I went on a forum to see if it's a common problem and I saw cars that were burned and I saw that it was a connection that was faulty. I remove my turn signal switch and I found out that it was burned too the exact same place. We were lucky that the car didn't catch fire. I went to a junk yard to see if I could get one and all the Dodge Neons that I got to they were all shots and burned. I want to get a recall for this that cannot be possible that all the cars even my friends car has that too and it's a Dodge Neon. Can something please be done about this

I have a 2004 Dodge Neon, my turning signals sometimes work and sometimes they don't. I have to bang the steering wheel for them to work properly. Also my horn stopped working all of sudden. I have checked all of the fuses and the horn it self and there is nothing found.

I have a Dodge Neon 2005 and I know a few other people that have them to. I have been getting like a stall and engine light coming on so I took it to auto zone and they say it's the cam sensor. Three out of the five people I know with Neon say they had the same thing happen and when I research it it's all over the internet why is this not a recall since so many people are having issues with it.

About 1 year ago, the vehicle started by itself when I was in the car and engaged the automatic door locks. Then on this occasion I was laying down in my room and must have rolled over on the remote and engaged the door lock button. The car started in the garage. Luckily, it was discovered in <5 minutes and the car was turned off. I have taken the batteries out of the remote and am no longer using it. I am taking the car in for diagnostic testing/repairs, but I don't think that I should have to pay for this since it is a safety issue.

When I turn on my right turn signal my fog lights turn on. I smelled something that smelled like burning electrical components. When I looked at my mfd switch connector the left side(number 10&20) was showing signs of melting.
