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.

2004 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 042012

Stratus SXT 2.4L 4 cyl Sulev Pzev

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


ac would not work unles you switch it to defrost real quick

I am so tired of this car I got some good years out of it and I have have customized it I have much love for it but after I replaced the motor now I have to do it all over again. Really this problem is so common that you have to wait for months to get the parts from a dealer to fix it and there are tons of rebuilt motors to buy for this car. They should defiantly do a recall on all Status motors the V6 has sludge problems that ruins the motor and this 2.4 ltr 4 cyl has an expiration date around 80k miles it throws a rod. Dodge Stratus's are POS's.
