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.

2006 Dodge Magnum Owner Comments

Magnum 8-cyl

I purchased a 2006 Magnum from lithia of fairfield in may of this year, 2006. The vehicle was running fine for the first five months (may-Oct) with the only distraction being one of the rear windows operated fine from both power switches for 90% of the time. I took it in during routine warranty service and explained to one of the service managers but because the power window switches were operable that day I was told there was nothing they could do (that didn't sit to well with me, but I shrugged it off and said ok). In October, a few other incidents happened like the blue tooth quit communicating with the system. I figured to wait until my next routine service maintenance to have it looked at in a few weeks. Around the same time frame I noticed the vehicle did not shift smoothly into reverse and that while sustaining a steady highway cruising speed the vehicle would feel like it wasn't firing on all cylinders if I gradually increased the rpms. I made note and asked to have this investigate at the same time I was taking the vehicle in for the scheduled maintenance. Unfortunately (or fortunate, depending on point of view of surviving a highway accident), the transmission failed while on the way to work driving on a very, very busy and dangerous stretch of road where the average speed is about 75 mph. The fortunate part of this being I was able to limp along for about one half mile on newly completed shoulder of the road to an exit. I literally shudder, which sends chills down my spine, to think "what if my wife had been driving the vehicle?".
