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: Fun fact — The 2008 Dodge Magnum was the last mid-size station wagon sold in the United States by an American automobile manufacturer.

I, deborah cross, was driving on the highway when all of a sudden the lights turned off, the dash gages dropped to zero and just as quickly the lights and gages went back to normal. This has happened on numerous occasions. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong.

I have not fixed any of the problems yet. I have a 2008 Dodge Magnum. The tail lights don't work at all. I've almost been rear-ended at night several times. The cruise control quit working. The car jerks very badly going into 3rd gear from 2nd. The car will not crank once every two days or so. The car cuts off at interstate speeds and when I'm not prepared it almost runs me off the road. The gauges cut all the way off while driving once every weeks. The check engine light stays on even though I've reset the computer several times. The front axle pops really bad when going around curves once or twice a month. The interior lights go dim for no reason on occasion. I've checked all fuses and relays and there is no problem. The dealership says that they've never had problems with this car although there are extreme amounts of internet forums talking about the problems with this car. This is only one site that has the problems. Please help us! thearticlewriter.com/autowriter/is-the-Dodge-Magnum-A-lemon/.
