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.

Stratus EX

  • 24,000 miles

at 12000 miles noticed that when braking the steering wheel would shake and shimy... had the rotors turned down and was told by quite a few repair places that "cheap" rotors are common on the Stratus. anyway had to have the rotors, brake pads and shoes replaced at 24,000 miles..... that is only the beginning..... now mind you i had good rotors put on and guess what?..... now at 35000 miles the shake and shimy are back...... took it back in and guess what i was told... the rotors are warping again and starting to ruin another pair of pads & shoes..... had to have the "new" rotors turned down already.......... of course Chrysler says there is nothing wrong with the Stratus braking system........ i say bulls#@^ !!!

anyone else have the same problem???
