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.

Vehicle intermittently emits a chemical odor from the A/C vents. At times it is almost intoxicating causing headaches and sore throat. At times it is a light odor others very strong to the point windows have to be rolled down......updated 10/20/15 the consumer stated the water pump was slowly leaking and the odor was burning anti-freeze on the engine.

2012 Dodge Charger//was sitting stationary when I heard a loud bang come from the engine compartment. Exited the vehicle and radiator fluid was pouring out from under the vehicle. Further investigation led to the passenger side fan had broken apart and seized. Also it came in contact with the radiator, splitting tubes on the aluminum core. Have read in forums that other consumers have had the same problem on early model Dodge Chargers 2006-2008....updated 11/13/15
