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. Notes: This is a classic example of why you should avoid the first model year of a new car. Sure, it's new and shiny but there's going to be some growing pains.

The 2005 Magnum has problems with the gear shifter getting stuck, a shaky and sometimes stalled engine and transmission failure at 75,000 miles.

Let someone else deal with those headaches.

2005, Dodge Magnum rt, 3800 miles. Struck tire tread debris on roadway. Broke vehicle fuel line adjacent to exhaust system. Vehicle immediately disabled due to engine stoppage. Raw fuel spilled on ground. No fire. Fuel system is primarily metal with exception of plastic connector at rear where fuel tank joins system. Connection needs deflector or guard of some sort if not total redesigned to avoid failure with fuel leak and fire hazard.
