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.

1998 Dodge Stratus 2.4L engine automatic 1. the engine is severly leaking oil. Two mechanics have looked at it and both said it needs a new head gasket. This car only has 76,000 miles on it. Upon research, this is a rampant problem. I have seen hundreds of complaints. They have changed the gasket type to fix this problem. This should be a recall item! 2. trunk latch seems to have a sticking problem. This too seems to be a very common problem.
