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 heater and air conditioner flap does not open and close properly. This results in cold air in the winter at times and no defroster and the windows ice up and fog up. It has been in the shop 4 times and not repaired properly. Some days it will work and some days it will not. This is very dangerous as it might be working when you leave and turn the vehicle off and then it just blow cold air out the defroster.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Nitro. While driving approximately 3 mph, the contact attempted to make a turn and the engine stalled without warning. The engine was restarted and the vehicle resumed normal operation. The failure occurred sporadically. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer three different times for the identical failure. The computerized system was reset after the first occurrence and the failure continued. The failure mileage and VIN were unavailable.
