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.

I had the right of way driving and a lady T boned me on my driver side. My car was declared totaled but at no time during the collision or even after did my airbags deploy.

In the last four months, my 2009 Dodge Charger has stalled three times without warning. It doesn't sputter, then die. It just shuts down. The first two times, I was driving straight. This last time, 12/08/14, I was turning in a parking lot. I lost my power steering and my power breaks. I hit the concrete base of a light pole hard enough to blow out my front driver-side tire and bent the tie rod. There is quite a bit of damage to the front quarter panel, bumper and broke the headlight. Not to mention, it has given me whiplash. I have not seeked medical attention at this time, but I have had it before, and am quite certain I have it again. I am not certain as to why the airbag did not deploy"?" I have read that this is a known issue, but there has not been a recall. I have seen other issues listed on this site regarding this particular car. I have had to replace a TPMS on one of my tires as well. I haven't look at all the complaints. But I also have an ongoing issue with my car not starting, numerous times a week. I have taken it to the dealership at least three times, and they cannot ever get it to duplicate. When I turn the key, it just turns over like it is going to start, then shuts down, without a single sputter. Kind of like how it is just shutting down while driving. The dealership replaced the battery in my key thinking that was the issue, nothing has helped. I would like to add my information into the group of individuals who have had problems with this particular car. After today's incident, my husband wants to get rid of it. I love my car, I just don't love the issues I am having with it, especially now that I am hurt. I am just thankful I am did not hit or hurt anyone else, due to this mechanical failure.
