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.

Transmission shifter interlock lever spring broke, and vehicle was stuck in park. There was a tsb filed and Chrysler's customer satisfaction campaign said it affected models from 2005 and 2007. When I called the recall center, the representative said it only impacted Dodge Chargers manufactured between July and September of 2007. I was told that there was nothing they could do.

Could not move the gear selector out of park. Forced it into reverse then into drive went on my way, it's been several months and working just fine. No repairs needed. I hope I won't need to do that again, if it does happen again I might take it to the dealer or risk braking the [xxx] thing.

Interlock brake lever broke. This is the piece that locks your car in park and you have to press brake pedal to release lock before shifting. Car wont come out of park position. I have seen several complaints of this online for Dodge and they are only willing to fix certain VIN numbers. I would like mine to be considered being as it only had 30K miles when this happened.

Transmission shifter interlock lever problem: I read there was a "silent" recall for this problem only for cars built between June and September of 2007. My car was built shortly before this period. My question is: Why isn't there a recall for all vehicles having this problem? a dealership quoted me over $400 to replace a single pink plastic part with a small, frail hook (which is what broke off) that attaches to a small spring. I believe this is a defective part and a design flaw that warrants a comprehensive recall. I cannot explain to you how much this has upset me and would really like the NHTSA to take the appropriate action and issue a recall for all cars affected. Thank you.

I was driving home along with my wife from running errands when my vehicle shut down while driving at 45mphs per hour. I called aaa to come and tow my vehicle. They did just that and the service-contracted towing company for aaa dropped my Dodge Charger rt off to the auto repair shop that I'm accustomed to going. The mechanic told me that the battery was drained heavily from the engine problem. So he took out the old battery I had and put in a new battery. Once he did that he tried to get the Dodge Charger rt to start but there was no luck. But eventually some electrical power was restored to a level in order for a diagnostic test to be performed. Once this mechanic completed the diagnostic test he told me that the codes he received are identical to the recall problems associated with the 2007 model of the Dodge Charger rt. He told me that the 2007 model for this vehicle had the most recall problems for the issue that I experienced which were engine problems. He said that the engine problems were the second most recalled issue after the transmission problems for this vehicle. He told me that I needed to investigate about getting a recall complaint made for this vehicle with the manufacturer (Dodge), because the engine problem justified the same recall issues that previous owners had with the model and year of this vehicle. Please help me because I was told that the manufacturer warranty expired.
