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.

The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that while driving 30 mph, he heard a loud abnormal noise. The contact immediately realized that the rear driver's side tire had blown. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where he was informed that the sensors on the inside of the vehicle exploded and caused the tire blow out. The failure recurred three months later on the front driver's side sensor and tire. The vehicle was not repaired for the recent failure. The failure mileage was 67,000 and the current mileage was 70,000. Updated 5/7/13 updated 06/10/2013

The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Charger. While the contact was driving approximately 55 mph, the tire pressure monitoring system warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The failure occurred sporadically. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who inflated the rear passenger tire to the proper pressure; however, the warning indicator continued to illuminate. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer for the third time and the rear passenger tire was replaced. The malfunction persisted. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 58,000.

While driving my 2009 Dodge Charger, my right rear tire sensor let go causing my right rear tire to go flat, because of my location I was unable to get off of the roadway when first observed, after stopping I noticed that the tire sensor valve stem was gone and I had three holes in my sidewall. Since the tire sensor valve stem was gone, I checked the other three tire sensor valve stems, I noticed a lot of corrosion on the valve stem.

I own a 2009 Dodge Charger with tire pressure monitor valve stems and by putting chrome valve caps on them it caused the 2 back ones to adhere to the stems causing them to break. I was never told when I bought the car brand new I couldn't change valve caps by the dealer, in Dodge manual, or in their warranty, only after the fact was I told by a Dodge dealer that I wasn't suppose to dress up my car with chrome valve caps cause they cause problems with the valves rotting to the caps. Dodge wont fix it claiming its an aftermarket part, theirs nothing wrong with the aftermarket part only with their part, the front are fine with no adhesion what so ever. Dodge knows about this problem just check the internet with Dodge customers complaining the same way. If I was told this or read it in their manual I would never put something in my car that would cost me 300 dollars in damages. All the new Chargers have rubber valve stems nor TPMS stems cause Dodge knew there was a problem. The have concealed this problem from their customers and now refuse to warranty it, their section in their owners manual about the TPMS valves states nothing about what valve caps to use or any warning about problems with chrome aluminum caps. They are ripping off consumers who put their trust in them. Now I have to drive my car with a flashing dash light due to this problem and its quite dangerous not to inform the public about this problem when one can adhere and blow while your driving. The dealer knows about this problem but doesn't tell you till the problem occurs their negligence and should repair this issue. Theirs no way id cause this problem if I was told when I bought the car. I also see there was a recall on the TPMS on 2009 Chargers I was never informed about this problem.
