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.

2006 Dodge Charger Owner Comments (Page 1 of 10)

problem #182

Dec 012015


  • 86,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. While driving approximately 55 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The contact found a recall related to the fuel tank. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and the fuel tank was replaced; however, the vehicle began to slow down to approximately 35 mph when reaching high speeds. Additionally, the rpms would continue to increase without the acceleration matching the RPM increase. The contact informed the manufacturer who opened a case on the contact's behalf and informed the contact that there was no recall relating to the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 86,000.

Pulled in to gas station because my gas light came on with my wife and 3 of my children, one being only 1 year old, and a trunk full of fresh meats and fish from the market on a hot ga day 45 miles from home, put in $30 worth of gas which almost filled it up, went to start my car and it started jerking, clicking and shaking real bad before it just died. As scary as it was that this was happening I tried to start again and got the same result. With this kind of load and a baby on a hot day, broke and no other way home, I tried a few more times until it stopped turning over and just made a click sound, 1 click. A tire shop guy across the street seen I needed help, due to the baby now hungry and crying, came over to see if he could help. After trying to start again he said may be my battery, alternator or starter so he went to the parts store and got an H7 loaner battery. Once installed tried starting and again it started jerking, clicking and shaking real bad before dying. Another guy walked over to help, again due to the baby crying, and said that sounds like your fuel pump and said "I heard of people having problems with this when filling up with gas and they(dealership) have to replace your gas tank for free". I had to pay well over $100 for a tow truck and had to pay a complete stranger to follow me home with my family because there was no room in the tow truck for them. I've never had issues like this with my car but now as I'm researching for diy resolutions I'm finding that there are others who have had similar issues. This needs to be fixed immediately. I'm now out of money. I have 5 children and am the only one in my house working and this is my only means of transportation that I am still paying a note on. By the way, tried to start my car again and its still doing the same effing thing. Chrysler needs to do something fast!!!

After refilling my tank with gas, my car suddenly began to stall. Immediately after refilling, I started my car and within a few seconds it shut off. After many attempts of starting it and remaining stationary, my car finally remained on for more than 5 minutes and I assumed it was safe to begin driving. 5 minutes into driving on a city street the car began to jerk and stalled in the middle of the street, fortunately it didn't cause an accident. I was able to restart it and turn into the nearest shopping center where I contacted chrystler, who claimed they had no knowledge of this issue. I've seen a multitude of complaints with similar, if not the same, issues I continue to experience.

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!

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.

Our problem still has not been fixed. The car continues to "die in flight." I have uploaded a video to youtube. Https:// 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.
