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.

2003 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 012004

Stratus SXT 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

THE DEALERSHIP REPLACED THE DASH 4 TIMES, EACH TIME THEY BROKE SOMETHING ELSE. CLIPS DOOR CHECK SAID THEY WOULD CALL WHEN THE PARTS CAME IN, BUT WE CALLED THEM MANY TIMES TO MAKE APPOINTMENT TO REPAIR BUT GOT EXCUSES.

problem #2

Jan 022006

Stratus SXT 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

The dashboard slowly started curling up under the windshield. Eventually, the vent covers and the speaker covers no longer fit because the dashboard shrunk. I cannot find an auto body to fix it because of the passenger side air bag. They are concerned that if they replace the dashboard and the air bag deploys the car will then be considered totaled. The only one that will touch is the dealership. They have estimated a price of a little over $1,200 to fix. I still have 2 years to pay on this car due to getting into it upside down in the first place. I have placed a complaint with Chrysler/Dodge and spoke with numerous individuals and I just keep getting passed along. This has been a major inconvenience and my car looks like crap. I just can't believe how much we have to pay for a plastic piece of sh*t nowadays.

The whole dash board curled up under the windshield. Car was just out of warranty and entire dash curled up so bad it popped the air bag cover.
