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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

When driving or sitting still the bas light comes on, car goes to 800 RPM idle and transmission goes into neutral. Car cannot be driven until I come to a stop, put car into park and turn ignition off. Vehicle can then be restarted and driven again until it does this again, either a minute later or a month later. This is very dangerous when driving in traffic and I have almost been hit by tractor trailers while trying to pull over and go again. Air bag light has been on since I bought car and dealer will not fix it.

I believe my cars has a problem with the gas tank. On Friday September 11 2015, we drove the car and it had gas at the time, suddenly the car just turned off on the street. On my gas meter or gage is always reading it on empty when it has fuel. It's also smelling like gasoline now. We bought the car from a used car dealer and it's still being financed. How can I know if it's a manufacture problem, I did some research and it happened to say that this gas problem happens to the Dodge Magnum 2005-2006, if it's a manufacture problem do I call the Dodge dealer and will it be fixed by them. I have two children, I can't drive a vehicle that is not safe. What options do I have. The vehicle also has an air bag recall, which the dealer has not fixed because they don't have the parts it's been over 3 weeks since we received the safety recall notice by mail.

There was no incident, I am writing to complain about failure to perform recall work. I received a notice from fca informing me of the recall in may or June. I also received a letter from the dealership, fremont California Chrysler Dodge Jeep, in June to inform me that my car was affected by airbag recall R25 / NHTSA 15V-313, and that I should wait for them to contact me when parts became available. They never contacted me. I called the dealership twice in early September and was told they could only add my name to a waiting list. I called again and left a message with the parts desk to please contact me to let me know when I would get parts. They did not return my call. I sent a written message to the dealership regarding this issue, and received no response or returned call. I am filing this complaint because I have been waiting for over three months, and they will not respond or resolve the issue - this is an unreasonable amount of time to wait for a safety related recall repair.
