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 Voyager Owner Comments

problem #3

Some months in 1998 after purchasing new van the battery died. After jump starting it the low gas light, and ringer kept going on. After it was repaired I was told the battery was defective. In January of 2002 I had to replace the battery. After I did this again the low fuel light, and ringer kept going off. A visit to two service depts., and I was told that the computer had only to be reset. After bringing my vehicle in far service I was than told I had a bad fuel module, and two thousand three hundred were on backorder. This sounds like a defect due to the number backordered, and also that if the consumer has to replace the battery after the warranty expires he now has to incur additional cost for a defective system problem every time you have to change the battery. 2300 backordered modules (per service manager richard biunno) seems to be a defect!!
