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.

2008 Dodge Charger Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 012008


  • miles


We had purchased a 2008 Dodge Charger with 2 miles. Approximately 3-4 months after we had purchased the vehicle it had engine oil on crankshaft seal, speedometer was erratic it would go from 60-0 from cruising, it had a jolt pulling feeling. From that point on the air conditioner was not cooling properly, & had a foul smell, cruise control would cancel by itself. Then on 06/23/2008 it had engine oil leak. So we decided to do something that would just completely ruin our credit, we voluntarily turned in the car. As of today 02/26/2009 we have a balance as per Chrysler of 7,500 dollars because they were only able to sell it for 17,000. I have invoices, to proof what our issues were, some were replaced, some tsb was and wasn't found. We had the vehicle for only 7-8 months. And for this to be such an issue with a brand new vehicle to me was just ridiculous. Since that was the main reason I had purchased a brand new car in the first place.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Charger. When applying pressure to the brakes, the vehicle vibrates excessively. The vehicle stalled twice when coming to a complete stop. While driving over 40 mph, the speedometer dropped to zero. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the key module and RPM module; however, the failure remains. She filed a complaint with the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 6 and current mileage was 25,970.
