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.

My 2009 Challenger caught on fire taking with it my garage! car was parked and as soon as the ignition key was turned, smoke was coming out of car from front side passenger area near front wheel/hood area. Within mins the car was up in flames along with my garage. I cant understand what caused this to happen. Car was running great! just one day it decided to ignite in flames. I cant explain it. As a woman trying to figure out what went wrong is even worse. Dodge wont help me. Ive tried contacting them and I dont hear from them.

While driving at a rate of 30mph car stalls without any reason. This has happened 8 times. When turning corners into busy intersection, it just frightens me to think of unsuspecting fast moving traffic that could hit me. I have read others who have the same problem why is there no recall? I only have 30 thousand on my car really! I have a car with low miles and pay a pretty note so I don't have these problems. I dread having to take it in tomorrow.
