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.

After refueling vehicle, engine stalled while making left hand turn in front of oncoming traffic, leaving me stuck in middle of intersection. Engine will stall coming to a stop, accelerating from a stop, turning corners, and a couple times while just driving down the road. When you restart motor, transmission will not reengage right away. Doesn't seem to happen if you keep fuel level below 14 gallons. Dodge dealership has said it might be a valve on top of fuel tank. Been happening for a while but seems to be getting worse.

After fuel up, car stalls. This is very unsafe as I was turning in front of on-coming traffic and car stalls and car just stops. Was able to have cars avoid hitting me and eventually started car again - only to have it stall once again. Car only has 30,000 miles on it for a 10 year car - this is a limited edition daytona. Very unhappy to find out about the number of complaints and Dodge hasn't done anything to remedy this 'manufacturer failure'! seriously considering selling this vehicle and swearing off all Dodge makes in the future.......have been a loyal Dodge consumer since the 70's!

Car stalls after getting gas. Has stalled while on the highway at 60mph, and has also stalled in the middle of an intersection almost causing an accident. Hard to control and no power steering when it stalls.

When trying to fuel the car, the pump continually clicks off like the tank is full. Will also spit fuel back out while pumping (no matter how slow you try to pump). I don't see how this isn't a safety issue.

Car stalls when slowing down or stopped, but not all the time, it's very erratic. On occasion it cuts out for a second while driving along at 50 mph.

Engine stalls (shuts off) after refueling. Major safety concern while in an intersection. This happens after refueling (not topping off).

Our problem still has not been fixed. The car continues to "die in flight." I have uploaded a video to youtube. Https://youtu.be/ssawxdfdswa this occurred while attempting to merge onto the interstate. The rpms jump up and down. The oil light and the electronic throttle control light flash and ding. The check engine light came on. This is going to cause an accident and the dealership says there is nothing wrong with the car.

After filling up with gas, the car stalls/dies 2-4 times. Restarts right up but this is a safety issue because it has died in heavy traffic, turning onto other streets in traffic and pulling out of parking lots into traffic. Severe safety issue!

I was in the middle of an intersection, turning left, and my vehicle just turns off. Very unsafe for a car to turn off in the middle of driving. Luckily this didn't cause an accident. 2 other instances, I was turning out onto a busy street, pulling out of the gas station after filling up. It makes me nervous to put gas in the car and wondering when the car will die out. The shutting down of the vehicle happens after everytime I put gas into it. Its not an issue of overfilling the tank because I, ve been filling up a vehicle gas tank for over 20 years and have never had an issue. Even if I don't fill it up completely, this occurs. I have heard from many other people having the same issue with the same year Chargers. Others who have had this same issue have said its the vapor purge valve on top of the gas tank.

After fiilling the gas tank of the 2006 Dodge Charger R/T the Charger has stalled numerous times after leaving the gas station. The Charger would restart. This is a vehicle safety issue. The 2006 Dodge Charger R/T has also stalled out on highway on ramps a couple of times. The Charger would restart but the cars behind were not very happy. This is also traffic safety problem.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. While driving 50 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. In addition, the contact mentioned that the vehicle failed to accelerate when the accelerator pedal was depressed. The vehicle was able to restart. The failure recurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed, but the cause of the failure could not be determined. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 77,000.

After fueling the car, it stalls out when I leave the gas station. It has stalled while stopped at a light, during a turn through an intersection and while driving down the highway at speed. After stalling, it starts back up and either stalls again or starts to do a hard stutter/bucking.

I have complained on this vehicle multiple times now. It continues to have a randomly stalling engine while driving. The dealership claims it is not the gas tank. It has finally started causing the check engine light to come on (yay! it might actually get fixed). Just kidding! the dealership states that the codes that show up are general PCM codes that mean nothing. From online research, it appears it may be an electrical issue with the PCM, ECM, or numerous other parts. Either way, most of us go without cars for weeks while mechanics cannot find the actual cause thus cannot fix a dangerous vehicle. Most of us don't want to drive vehicles that stall while going 40 mph.

After filling my gas tank my car stalled on the freeway. The next time I filled my tank my car stalled twice while driving on side streets. I have been told it is the vapor purge valve. I can only fill my tank partially or I stall. This is very dangerous.

At 105000 miles I noticed this for the first time in September 2015 after filling it the car repeatedly stalled while in traffic, at a stop light and while going around a turn at slow speeds. Once the tank was around 3/4 full I noticed it stopping. It restarted, but caused me to stop in traffic and wait a second to put in N or P to restart and then back into gear. This is a real safety hazard and surprised it hasn't elevated to a recall. I thought it was bad fuel - the first time this happened, 2 fill ups later it still occurred leaving no check engine light for me to trouble shoot. That lead me to the internet and I found investigation PE 13-016 which sounds exactly what my issue is. I called the dealer to set up an appointment to get the recalled airbag fixed. I asked them to remedy this concurrently but they acted real stupid on the phone - I wanted to make sure the parts were on hand to fix it at this time. I hope they honor the extended warranty as I am the only owner and don't remember getting the letter sent to me on this matter. I am curious from this repair what they will not cover and if they will overcharge for other items that "they find". I am not exactly sure what they are covering under this extended warranty?
