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.

problem #8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles


07 Dodge Charger, with automatic transmission, and console shifter. The plastic piece holding the park gear release spring breaks off and the vehicle can then not be shifted into gear. This is an obvious engineering flaw that Chrysler and it's dealerships are well aware of, and choose not to address as a warranty or recall issue. The vehicle I am involved with has only 46,000 miles. The problem is widespread enough that the aftermarket parts industry, speciffically dorman, manufactures and sells a metal replacement for this obviously defective and inadequate part.

My car shifter won't come out of park. I own a Dodge Charger 2007. Had to get a tow truck to take car to mechanic. Was told that they get an average of 2 of these cars per week for the same problem. Checked in internet and found several complaints about the same problem. I want to get reimbursed from the Chrysler/Dodge company for this expense ($518) because this should be a recall issue for all the Charger owners. The mechanic informed the consumer the gear shift lever broke and the piece had to be removed and replaced. Updated IVOQ 12/01/10

Charger 6-cyl

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. When shifting the gear into drive, the vehicle would not accelerate. The contact also noticed a puddle of transmission fluid underneath the vehicle. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they identified five error codes associated with the transmission. The technician further stated that the transmission was not covered under the warranty; therefore, they would not assume responsibility for any repairs. The vehicle has not been repaired. She is in the process of notifying the manufacturer in reference to NHTSA campaign id numbers 08V583000 (power train:automatic transmission:lever and linkage:column shift) and 06V341000 (power train:automatic transmission). The failure mileage was 15,000 and current mileage was 38,000. Updated 3/11 /09 updated 03/13/09.
