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.

The dashboard should not warp and bubble. I've never had this happen to one of my vehicles before. This needs to be replaced by Dodge!

Stratus 3.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

This is bull, when you consider what you pay for this vehicle. The dash should not be bubbling or pulling up. This is why people are buying foreign and the auto makers are going under. Over paid employees and crappy work. There should be a re-call and Dodge should fix this problem.

I hope that it's fixed, but I'm starting to wonder.

problem #1

Stratus R/T Coupe 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

Shortly after the 3 yr/36000 mile warranty ran out, I noticed bubbling around the dashboard vents near my windshield. You can now see the tan insulation under the dashboard popping out from around the vents. This also happened with a relative's Ford vehicle & the vehicles were recalled for repair, but I haven't heard of any other Stratus owners having this problem, so I really haven't bothered. It's ugly to look at, though, especially on a $26,000 vehicle! Anyone else have the same problem?
