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 #3

Aug 012010

Stratus SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


One hot day in the Summer of 09 the blower on my AC went out. It would only work at level 4 or "full blast". I went the entire winter with full blast heat and finally had it fixed in February 10. It cost about $400.00 to fix and turned out to be a small plastic piece next to the blower. My air conditioning and heater totally work now and it's a lot quieter. I have had the car since 04 and was not covered by a warranty.

Vent for the AC and heater only works on Level 4. No air comes out when on any level other than the highest setting!

(reported on)

Stratus R/T 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

Within the last 2 months, 3 out of 4 of the heater vents have broken. You can't aim them anymore, they're just stuck where they broke. If I'm paying this much for the car I really don't think the vents should be breaking. I called the warranty company and they said it is considered a "body" problem and isn't covered.
