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.

1998 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

I am filing this complaint to have on record this incident and seeking questions already posed to daimler Chrysler. I informed daimler Chrysler by email, that my 1998 Dodge Stratus caught on fire with my daughter. On May 23, 07 on peoples court a 1997 Dodge Stratus was burnt to a crisp because of the power steering hose. A porter hill @ 248-944-7134, from daimler Chrysler contacted me regarding the date that this incident took place and the location of the vehicle. That they would be coming to see the vehicle. I just received a letter today from daimler Chrysler customer claims resolution group with no signatures reading that they have completed their investigations into the incident and they have denied the claim. That further inquiries be directed to the insurance company. I had inquired to know from Chrysler if they had other reported incidents with power steering hoses causing fires to this type of vehicle and whether this vehicle had any recalls. Yet, no one has answered this question.
