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.

Stratus SXT 2.4L 4cyl

Noticed a rubbing noise in the front end 3 months after buying the car in July of 2005, had First Team Dodge in Chesapeake VA look into it in Dec of 05 when serviced, found nothing. Problem got worse, had the service center look into it in April when vehicle was serviced again, NOTHING FOUND. July 2006: New tires in the front, aligned and problematic sound looked into... nothing found. Long story short, the problem was getting worse, and nobody was able to figure out what it was. I went to a Dodge dealership in my hometown and had them look at it, they found it! The inner tie rods were shot at 50K! If the warranty I purchased would not have covered it, I'd be out over $1000. Thank God somebody still does their job at a few of the Dodge dealerships.
