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.

Help!! I have a 2008 Magnum. I tried for 3 months to get the ignition recall done. "parts weren't available". suddenly 3/2016 my car shut off while driving. It was towed to a dealer where they did the P57, R25 recalls. Upon return of car to me I notice dash functions inoperable. I went right back inside and was told I could leave it to be looked at (I would be billed) I called fcausllc and they set me up for a tow to a 2nd dealer. There it was found the wiring under the dash had been pulled apart. Partial repair was made there, but I then had a slow drain on electrical system. For 2+ months I was ignored by fca trying to get the issue remedied. On 5/22/16 I was on highway and car completely shut down again. This time I hit a retaining wall. It's been 3 months and I have no solution to this. I was ignored for a month and a half. Then they deneyed my claim due to it "not being a mfg. Defect" they knew the problem before this happened in the meantime the dealer where the car is has notified me the cars airbags had been deployed and are no good.... if they just replaced one of them, how had they been deployed... why would they said to have done a recall on a deployed system..... and why was I not notified of a airbag system that would not have helped me if I would have hit the wall head on? I have filed 2 complaints with BBB, and fca lied about the whole situation, and the case was closed. The dealership that messed up the electrical system replied with a false situation, and sales pitch for a new car, and my file was closed. I am 2500+ miles from my vehicle, am in financial shambles. No one from fca will even return my calls, and they refuse to give me any info when I call. This has destroyed my business, family, finances, and state of mind. I am out of options, please let me know how to pursue this. Thank you
