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.

2007 Dodge Charger Owner Comments

problem #3

Sep 062013


  • 70,954 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that while at a stop, the gauge indicated that the engine was overheating followed by a loud noise. There was smoke being emitted from underneath the hood and antifreeze was leaking onto the ground. The contact discovered that the fan blades were missing. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic, who stated that the engine fan blade on the drivers side fractured and punctured the radiator. As a result, the radiator needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 70,954.

My 2007 Dodge Charger was rendered inoperable when the engine cooling fan blades separated unexpectedly, causing severe damage to the radiator. This incident ultimately resulted in engine failure. When this incident was reported to the Chrysler group, the case manager was informed of a recall that addressed this same issue. Please refer to customer satisfaction notification L08 engine cooling fans. This notification cautions owners that the electrically powered radiator cooling fans on about 52,000 of the referenced vehicles (include 2007 Dodge Charger) may separate during fan operation and cause damage to the radiator. This exact failure occurred to my vehicle costing me in excess of $2000 but the Chrysler group refused to offer assistance due to the fact that my VIN fell outside of the range to the vins included in the recall and that my vehicle was out of warranty. I request that a the existing recall be expanded to all of the vehicles types listed within the 2006-2008 time frame instead of limiting to the 52,000 estimated in the notification. Updated 01/24/13

Charger 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,044 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. On November 1, 2006, the vehicle was serviced for a basic oil change and filter at 3,600 miles. On January 2, 2007, the vehicle was taken to the dealer for basic maintenance, in which the contact requested a tire rotation because the tires were wearing very quickly. He was informed that the tires were rotated, balanced, and that the oil was changed. Two months later, the contact noticed that the tires continued to wear very quickly and the brakes were not stopping the vehicle properly. He went to a local tire store and was informed that the tires were placed on the vehicle incorrectly and that two different sized tires should have been installed. The contact returned to the dealer and they were supposed to provide new tires and brakes. They provided the tires and new front brakes, but no rear brakes. The dealer also failed to repair a rattling noise in the fan under the hood; however, they did not. Currently, the brakes lock sometimes and the fan still makes a noise as if leaves and sticks are under the hood. The contact has a 100,000 mile warranty, but was advised to take his vehicle to another dealer. The powertrain was unknown. The current mileage was 32,000 and failure mileage was 10,044.
