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 Neon was misfireing, replaced plugs two different times within 2 months, gas millage rotten took to dealer, they replaced the oxygen sensor, still having trouble, the car was in 3 times for that problem. For the past 1 1/2 months the vehicle has been loosing oil, leaving puddles all over, have put in 6 qts. Of oil on my own in the past 1 1/2 months, plus had a complete oil change. Found out the head gasket is bad, Chrysler says they have not hurd of any other Neons with this trouble. Tormohlens (dealer) also says there have been no other Neons with this trouble. Contacted other repair shops, was told this is a reaccuring problem with the Neons. Dealer offered to do it if Chrysler pay part, and then I have to pay $200 deductable. If this is a known problem with Neons there should not be any cost. This is a problem that should be recalled if there are that many Neons with this problem. Will not fix at this time, not paying for. Attorney contacted.
