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

Stratus ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


In April I purchased a 2004 Dodge Stratus SE and I noticed there was a lot of under body rust. I thought it was just my car but when I saw other silver Stratus' driving around I noticed they had the same issue. I also notice that these are not very strong cars. Almost every Stratus I see has a dent or ding somewhere. I came off of a semi-steep hill and the front two clamps on each side of my front bumper came off so now my bumper randomly unclamps on each side when I am driving. It's a complete pain in the ass because I have to pull over and push the bumper back on. I know Dodge cars and trucks are usually built strong but I think this car is Dodge's version of a Cadillac Catera.
