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

I purchased a 04 Dodge Stratus with a 2.7 engine and need to replace the water pump, which is expensive. It has 100,000 miles on it. I have read the complaints with this engine and am scared to fix anything. This sludge problem I read about could be next for us. And from what I read will be. I purchased it for my son and never herd of these problems until now. He has had it for about 6 months and now this. We have hardships just like any other family and fixing minor problems with vehicles are bad enough. The fix for this is about $1000 will the sludge be next? I would like to be apart of any law suit.
