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.

After being stopped in traffic for a few minutes I released the brake to accelerate, the car began to sputter and stalled immediately afterwards. I then put the car in park, turned it off and it restarted with no problems. It has done this once a week for the last three weeks. The check engine light has not come on at any point. I ran a diagnostic with the obd2 and it produces no codes.

Avenger 4-cyl

  • 58,250 miles
While driving on the freeway, an object hit under the vehicle and punctured a hole in the plastic, unprotected fuel tank causing a leak. Fortunately it only caused a leak and did not result in a fire. I was surprised to find out that the fuel tank was plastic and did not have any protection from road hazards to prevent punctures, especially when it is so close to the ground.

The contact owns a 2011 Dodge Avenger. The contact stated that while attempting to merge into highway traffic at 50mph the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact was able to restart the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times for the failure. The dealer performed a diagnostic twice and advised that the gas cap was not properly tightened and could cause the vehicle to stall, however the vehicle continued to stall without warning and could not be restarted. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 34,300 and the current mileage 34,712.
