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.

We have had our 2010 Dodge Charger, vehicle I.D. #[xxx] put in the shop for fuel system trouble. When we go to fill up the tank with gas no matter what the outside temperature is, it over flows all over the side of the car and onto the ground. We purchased the vehicle from dough grey. 1421 West third, P O box 1229, elk city ok 73648 and the phone number is 580-225-3005. We have had the car in the shop 2 times and called them again because the matter has not been resolved. They informed us that they can not help us in this matter. What can we do to get this problem resolved? our son is the one that purchased this vehicle for us and buys a lot of his company vehicles from this company. His name is [xxx] and he works for champion drilling fluids, elk city, ok. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

This December 2011, I have owned the car for two years. It has stalled in traffic three times while turning to the left and once while turning to the right. It felt like the vehicle had run out of gasoline, however there was plenty of gasoline. I have avoided three collisions, the last two because I was able to restart the vehicle quickly, due to experience. I have taken the vehicle to the dealer ("redlands Dodge" California) however they say the computer has no record and of the problem and they can't recreate the problem. I have found on the "internet" several sites of owners of the same vehicle and year with the same problem. This problem is not being addressed by Dodge because the dealership told me there is no fix at this time or recall.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Charger. The contact stated that whenever he is in the vehicle with the engine running, gas fumes start to accumulate inside the cabin. One occupant became sick from the fumes. The dealer cannot duplicate the failure. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer had not been contacted. This failure started as soon as he purchased the vehicle. The current mileage was approximately 3500.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Charger. The contact stated he was traveling at an unknown speed, coming to a complete stop. While sitting still with the vehicle idling, he would smell a strong odor of fuel and exhaust fumes emitting inside of the vehicle. In addition, on a different occasion the engine completely stalled with the illumination of several warning lights. The vehicle had not been diagnosed or repaired at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 1,000.

When filling the fuel tank of this vehicle, the fuel tank accepts only a very small amount of gasoline at a time, approximately one-tenth of a gallon at a time. Although the gas tank on the car is far from full, the person fueling the tank then continues to squeeze the handle on the gasoline spigot, but the tank rejects the gasoline and the gasoline spills out onto the car body, the person and the ground beneath the vehicle. I have experienced this problem with a number of 2010 Dodge Chargers rented at various locations across the country over the last nine months. This may be a filler tube venting problem.
