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.

2 issues: 1) the car stalls (engine cuts off) sporadically. It restarts without hesitation but the stalls are during transit which is very dangerous in traffic. I see a lot of instances where this complaint has been reported but I don't see any recalls on this issue. 2) when someone is sitting on the front passenger seat with the seat belt buckled, the seatbelt warning light and chiming continuously blink and sounds. Also, all the emergency lights on the dashboard blinks simultaneously periodically. Not sure if that is related but I don't see any recalls concerning this. I will be reporting these to the media for assistance in getting these issues addressed with my vehicle.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Magnum. The contact has experienced several failures with her vehicle and electrical components. The driver's side seat belt was inoperable and failed to move when she attempted to pull and secure it over her body. She would have to turn off the vehicle and play with the belt for a while before it would operate properly. The dealer replaced the entire seat belt module, but the seat belt failed several times after the repair was performed. The manufacturer suggested that the failure could be related to the computer system in the vehicle. The contact was concerned that the seat belt would not operate correctly in the event of a crash. The dealer stated that they did not know what else to do to correct the failure. She was able to locate a technical service bulletin for the seat belt retractor. In addition, the sun roof was inoperable and would open and close intermittently. The failure and current mileages were less than 28,000.
