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.

Gear shift sticks in park due to cheap plastic part designed to break but with no remedy other than full replacement of shifter. It appears to occur in large numbers if not every Dodge Charger years 2006-2009.

Shifter stuck in park. After research on internet, found it is a common problem. Why would a major car manufacturer use a cheap easily breakable plastic part in a component that is used so frequently.

Charger stuck in park: Tried to start 2007 Charger and it was stuck in park. This has been the first major problem I have had with this car and very inconvenient. Tried looking at the manual to see if it was anything that could be done on my end, but nothing worked. Car is still inoperable and I can not afford to get it towed. It is under three years old.

My car is stuck in park! I have no idea what happened. I drove it today with no problems then all of a sudden I try to leave and it wont allow me to put it in reverse. I have seen a numerous amount of complaints online with people having the same problem so this is something that is common with these cars. "my car hasn't been repaired yet!" I don't think I should have to pay for something that I didn't cause.

On the morning of October 16, 2009 my 2007 Dodge Charger did not notify me of any problems and the check engine light did not go on. I started my engine and proceed to change gears and it was lock. I did know what was wrong so after out-of-pocket expenses towing to the dealer-ship the mechanic said that it is broken gear shift mechanism then mechanic said, "it was not my fault. It is a internal problem and there is no reason why it broke." To make matters more difficult for me the warranty that came with the car will not even cover this part. This is a defect in the car. What if was driving and could not shift back to park or reverse would I have had to been a accident and risk my life" to correct the failure it will cost me to pay close to $400 to replace/repair. Let me remind you guys that I did nothing wrong with the car it is something that broke by itself. I take care of my car I service when needed and I only use to commute to for errands, work and home. This is a valid part and a warranty will not cover that" please review my complaint and consider the circumstances that the gear shift mechanism is a defected part on 2007 Dodge Charger.

Charger 6-cyl

  • 43,995 miles
2007 Dodge Charger, 6 cyl, base model. Car stalls when either coming to a stop or at a complete stop, when just off brake to accelerate, when going from reverse to drive, when exiting the freeway, etc. Car attempts to stall sporadically when driving. Have almost been rear-ended three times, almost hit when accelerating onto the freeway by a car already on the freeway because car tried to stall, and car stalled on railroad tracks after waiting for a train and then putting car in drive. Car has been in and out of shop four times with random items replaced, but no diagnosis has been made and the issue remains. The car has now been in the shop about a month and there is still no answer.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that the vehicle would not operate in the reverse position. When the gear shifter was placed into reverse, the vehicle would jerk rapidly. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they could not duplicate the failure. On a separate occasion, the vehicle failed to respond completely when it was shifted into reverse. The vehicle currently does not operate in reverse at all. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were less than 41,000.
