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.

2001 Plymouth Neon Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 072003


  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,193 miles


The starter on my 2001 Plymouth Neon needed to be replaced before I even owned it for 2 years. I did not buy the extended warranty and my 3 year/36,000 mile warranty has expired by 6000 miles. I had a remote car starter installed but I have been told the remote starter more than likely did not cause the starter to fail. A brand new, or 2 year old car's starter should not have failed so soon. Is there any way to get reimbursed for my repair and brand new starter's cost of $405 by either the dealer of the vehicle or the manufacturer or installer of the remote car starter?
