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.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that when the fuel tank was filled to capacity, the vehicle stalled then the oil pressure light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who replaced the fuel tank and the fuel operational canister. However, the failure was not corrected. The vehicle continued to stall. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 70,000 and the current mileage was 109,000. The VIN was not available.

The engine stalls after I fill the fuel tank to its full capacity. This stalling usually occurs within a block or so after leaving the gas station. I then have to sit on the side of the road, or in the middle of the road and wait a few minutes before the engine will re-start. Lately, I have not filled the gas tank to its full capacity. I feel this is a real safety issue. I understand that this is a problem with the rollover valve on the top of the fuel tank and the only way to correct this issue is to have the fuel tank replaced.

After fueling my 2006 Dodge Charger R/T, the car will begin to sputter and completely shut-off. This results in the loss of power steering and having to put the car into park in order to restart. It will occur multiple times, sometimes while idling, before it will begin to act has been happening for several months. At first, it was sporadic but now it is everytime I fill up the gas tank. It can be very dangerous as it can happen anytime and without warning.

My car started dying after being filled at the gas station. It was very dangerous driving and slowing down to have it die. Clearly there is a problem somewhere in the fuel system.

  • 31,260 miles
Notice fuel smell in my garage. Took to mechanic and found gas tank strap has punctured fuel tank on passenger side of vehicle. Upon inspection found that gas tank strap is missing foam insulation between tank and strap. This vehicle is not driven in winter so it is very clear that this foam was not installed at factory. I have contacted Chrysler to see if they will repair vehicle since it is out of warranty. Looking up on internet there are pages of gas fumes from Dodge Chargers. This is a safety hazard since gas fumes are highly flammable.
