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.

Consumer took vehicle for inspection. Vehicle didn't pass inspection because rotors were rusted which caused the front brake pads to wear out. Also, brake line was defective. Consumer stated that he fixed vehicle and he wants reinbursement from the dealership.

Brakes had to be replaced at under 20,000 miles. Rotors warped. There is a problem with the brakes on the Dodge Stratus. I work for Chrysler, and I have spoken with other owners who have encountered the same type of problem with their Stratus'.
