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.

2007 Dodge Nitro Owner Comments

I went to grab my door handle with 2 fingers and the handle just snapped preventing me from exiting my vehicle. In the event of an emergency I fear that I am unable to exit my vehicle due to this faulty handle that has been manufactured for this vehicle. This is just one of many issues this vehicle has in addition to the 7 or 8 recalls for issues that have already been acknowledged. This whole vehicle should be recalled! almost every plastic part on this vehicle has broken off, cracked, or malfunctioned.
