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.

2006 Dodge Magnum Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012006

Magnum 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,800 miles


: the contact stated while driving at no particular speed, the throttle control light illuminated and the vehicle lost power. The vehicle did not stall, however the RPM's never exceeded 1800. The vehicle was taken to the local dealership for inspection. The dealer determined the accelerator pedal sensor needed replaced. After the sensor was replaced, another problem arose. Driving at no specific speeds, a loud bang was heard coming from the rear of the vehicle in the exhaust system. The contact described the sound as a muffled explosion type noise. The vehicle was taken to the dealership several times for inspection. However, the problem could not be duplicated and no repairs were made. The manufacturer was alerted and informed the contact the engineering department would investigate. Updated 03/03/06.
