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.

Power windows on this car are designed to come down about an 1/8 to a 1/4 inch when you open the doors, and go back up when you close them. While car was parked the drivers window did not roll down all the way, then as I rolled the window up and exited the car the window did not do what it is designed to do, and is on the outside of the seal. The passenger window will keep going up and down as it was meant to except it will do it with the door closed and nobody opening the door. This is very distracting and could run the battery down and be a fire hazard.

Challenger 8-cyl

  • miles
The Challenger srt8 is not equipped with a dash illumination system, which comes on, during normal daytime driving. The instruments (speedometer, tachometer) are only illuminated during operation of the parking or headlamps function. The gauges are somewhat recessed and are only partially visible during daytime driving conditions. Further, when turning on the headlamps, during daytime operation, the amount of illumination available, with the adjustment at maximum brightness, is still at a minimum value. This presents an obvious safety issue as to speed of vehicle, engine rpms and vital engine temperature readings.
