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 Plymouth Neon Owner Comments

problem #3

I have a 1998 Plymouth Neon. The roof of my car began peeling over a year ago, and has rapidly spread and now has rust developing. I have noticed several other Neons in my area with similar peeling problems. I have contacted crysler and the refuse to help since the warranty on the paint is 3 years/36,000 miles. I think that is ridiculous. Paint on a car should last much, much longer than 3 years.
