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.

2006 Dodge Charger. Consumer writes in regards to design defect on gas tanks the consumer stated after driving the vehicle for a year, it started stalling without warning. It kept getting more and more frequent as time went by, but he never realized what was causing the stalling, until one afternoon he left the gas station, and as he turned onto a roadway, he tried to accelerate, and the vehicle stalled and another vehicle swerved to avoid him, but that vehicle crashed into another vehicle and then a tree. A police officer informed the consumer, his vehicle had a known defect with the design of the gas tank. After doing some research, the consumer read where the valve was molded in the gas tank, so raw fuel flooded the valve, stalling the engine.

  • Automatic transmission

During normal driving conditions, the fuel tank was punctured and a significant amount of gas streamed out of the tank. To the drivers and passenger's knowledge, no foreign objects were struck by the vehicle. During the subsequent repair by the dealer, it was discovered that the gas tank is made out of plastic, and the corner that was punctured was not protected by an additional shielding device.
