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.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Magnum. When the contact started the ignition, there was a loud abnormal noise and he noticed antifreeze leaking under the vehicle. The fan blade cut into the radiator, which made the vehicle inoperable without warning. The failure recurred on two other occasions. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 195,000.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Magnum. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was able to be restarted.

The vehicle was taken to five different independent mechanics, where the fuel pump, fuel pump module, gasket manifold, coolant housing, spark plugs, water pump, battery, ignition switch, the keys and the computer settings were replaced. However, the failure persisted. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.

When driving on a M-39 southfield freeway in Michigan on 09sep14, when applying part throttle input, and during a 1-2 shift or 2-3 shift, and during the shift remove my foot from the throttle the vehicle would then stall and the engine would shut off. This happen twice during the course of the trip and both occurrences happen when the vehicle was on a slight grade going up hill and the vehicle was loaded with one driver and some items. The vehicle was typically in the speed range between 18 miles per hour and 22 miles per hour. The vehicle is running calibration id 04896403al.

Magnum 6-cyl

  • 113,500 miles


While car was at idle the electric cooling fan "broke apart" and damaged the radiator. Dodge stated that a recall was issued for the problem but only for cars in warm weather areas (I guess California is considered a cold weather area) dealer stated that even though I live in a warm weather area the recall will still not apply to my vehicle. I find this totally unacceptable and will not continue my business with Dodge any longer.

Magnum 6-cyl

  • 104,000 miles
While driving through Arizona in my 2007 Dodge Magnum SXT one of the cooling fans disintegrated and damaged my radiator punching holes and causing coolant to begin rapidly leaking. After assessing the damage I was able to limp the car along to the next town where I waited for a friend to pick up a new radiator and drive 2 hours to our location where we changed it out in a parking lot. It was 107 degrees. 2 days later I purchased and installed the fan from the local Dodge dealer. I returned home the next day and began researching the cause of this equipment failure. It turns out that Chrysler released a recall "customer satisfaction notification L08 engine cooling fans" for 2006 thru 2008 model year vehicles with "severe duty engine cooling" systems with the sales code nms, xdl or xdk and built through April 29, 2008. My vehicle has the sales code nmcp and has been excluded from the recall. However my research reveals that there is no distinguishable difference in the fans part number from the years 2004 thru 2014. Contacting Chrysler about this brought no results. I recommend establishing a record of these fan failure occurrences in vehicles that have other than the recall's stated sales codes, and that a new recall for all vehicles with this cooling fan system be released. The existing recall includes "sold to sales codes and/or are currently registered in warm climate states...". I live in a designated warm climate state according to the recall. We were fortunate that the blades didn't cut any high pressure hydraulic lines or other safety critical or fuel lines.
