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.

    Actions: Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Mitsubishi mailed interim notices to owners on July 22, 2016.

  4. 2009 Dodge Challenger TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS NHTSA Campaign #08V642000

    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 05, 2008
    • Vehicles Affected: 175

    Summary: Chrysler is recalling 175 MY 2009 Dodge charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300 vehicles. The tire pressure monitor (tpm) sensors may not transmit the actual tire pressure. This could result in the driver not being aware of low tire pressure.

    Consequence: Operation of the vehicle with low tire pressure could result in tire damage and cause a crash without warning.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the tpm sensors. The recall is expected to begin on February 9, 2009. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V642000 »

  5. 2009 Dodge Challenger POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH NHTSA Campaign #08V458000

    • Date Announced: SEPTEMBER 10, 2008
    • Vehicles Affected: 6,636

    Summary: Chrysler is recalling 6,636 MY 2008-2009 Dodge Challenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions and "keyless go" option. These vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 114, "theft prevention." If the stop/start button is pressed and held and the engine turns off, the electronic key code is removed from the vehicle. Since this can occur in a transmission or gear selector position other than "park, " and the transmission or gear selector does not become locked in "park" as a direct result of key removal, it was determined that a noncompliance may exist.

    Consequence: This standard specifies vehicle performance requirements intended to reduce the incidence of crashes resulting from theft and accidental rollaway of motor vehicles.

    Actions: Dealers will reprogram the wireless ignition node module so the engine can only be turned off when the transmission and gear selector is in the "park" position. The recall began on September 15, 2008. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #08V458000 »
