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 encountered a rough bridge expansion joint on the highway, the key fell out of the ignition killing the engine in heavy fast moving traffic. I was able to coast to the shoulder, it took four or five tries to re-start the car. This problem has continued for over two months. Dodge diagnosed the problem as a bad win module. This same part was a recall on 37,355 other cars of this make and year, but not on mine based on the VIN? Dodge will do nothing to cover the fix, they say the repair part is unavailable, I'm forced to drive it as is and take my chances.

Car sitting parked on 70F day for 4 hours. It had been driven for about 25 minutes before that at 60-65mph. I went to open the car door and noticed that the trunk was unlocking repeatedly. Opened the car door and watched smoke pour out. Entire left-hand side of the front passenger seat had burned and the right-hand side of the center armrest had melted. The headliner had been burned on the right-hand side of the car as well. The doors and trunk continued to lock and unlock until we had gotten the fire out and finally gotten the battery disconnected. Burnt debris scattered throughout car where lit material floated around and finally fell back to the seats/floorboard. Windows were nearly blacked out by the smoke.

Charger 8-cyl

  • 6,000 miles
Had my first problem with my 2010 Dodge Charger R/T ~ 6K miles on the clock. Driving down the road in ~ 5 degree F temps - the car was fully warmed up and it was around 9am in the morning, the car suddenly died, with all the error indicators coming on. Luckily I was able to get off to the side of the road as power steering and braking went out. I stopped the car, checked under the hood for some sort of visible damage. Seeing none & checking the oil level - I went to restart and found that the car wouldn't turn over. Double checked I was in park, everything was squared away - took the key out - put it back in, turned - and heard a single ignition - like one coil went off - then stopped. Tried it again, wouldn't turn over. So I call Dodge roadside for a tow and sit there for 10 minutes. While waiting I decided to then try it again, then magically the starter actually goes and it turns over. I was maybe 5 miles away from the dealership - so I took it straight there where they took a look at it. For whatever reason, they were unable to duplicate the problem nor tell me why it occurred or how I can prevent this from happening in the future.
