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.

I was in route home and stopped to get fuel and proceeded on my route when my vehicle completely stalled with no use of breaks or steering available. In attempt to gain control of the vehicle I crashed into a ditch. End resulted in me with my insurance company totaling out my vehicle. I had no means of transportation and at complete loss of a vehicle that I finally was thru paying for!! I wish someone will help me and my family the loss of this vehicle took a great toll on my family! I contacted the dealerships and even lawyers!

Tires have stress cracks about 1-inch from where the tire is mounted to the rim and it goes all the way around my tires. Scared that the tire may be defected.

Our 2006 Dodge Charger was showing symptoms of the wheels being out of alignment, and we had it checked out by a mechanic. We knew what he was going to say before he came back with his assessment; its the tie rods once again. We have had problems with the tie rods on this car from the 3rd month of owning it. We have had it fixed by the dealer 3 times along with new brakes and tires at the cost of $2,000 each time. We drive 20 miles a day to and from work, there is no reason for the tie rods to be replaced. I have complained to the dealership and they told me that it is an issue that we will continue to have and there is nothing we can do about it. He had 4 Chargers in that day with the same issue. I contacted Chrysler 2 days ago because we need to have the tie rods fixed for the 4th time. They told me they would forward my complaint to the product development team. Chrysler needs to own up to the defective products they are selling! I'm afraid for our family of 4 to ride in this car. Do people have to die before an investigation is warranted? I want to get rid of this car but I hate to pawn it off on another family, its dangerous! please do an investigation, and ask dealerships and mechanics how many defective tie rods they place on these cars a day.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. While driving approximately 60 mph, the contact noticed a violent vibration and shaking from the front passenger side of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The technician recommended replacing the wheel and tire because of dents found on the wheel. After the tire and wheel was replaced, the failure persisted. The vehicle was not further repaired. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 55,000.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Charger. The contact purchased his vehicle used from the dealer on March 9, 2009. Three days later, the front wheels began to shimmy badly and the trunk leaks when it rains. He took the vehicle back to the dealer and they stated that they could not balance the wheels on the front end. He was advised to visit a Dodge dealer; however, Dodge could not balance the wheels as well. Currenlty, the Dodge dealer is attempting to repair the trunk issue and possibly the wheels again. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 21,120.

Charger 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,234 miles
Upon braking, I experience vibrations in the steering. Took to a dealer who examined my wheels and determination is warped front rotors. I have 16, 000 miles on my car and warped rotors? service manager advised to replace rotors at consumer expense. I feel as many other Dodge Charger owners with the same problem, it is a manufacturer defect.
