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

Oct 252007

(reported on)

Stratus LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


I am so mad & will add more complaints. . .I only wish I had dealt with this immediately! My 2004 Dodge Stratus stops when idling. If I'm slowing down enough to pull into a parking space, it stops. When I'm on the highway in stop & go traffic it repeatedly stops. This happens more often when the weather is hot. The first summer I had the car, it happend once & I did not think much of it. I took it to dealer who ran diagnostic & found nothing. The second summer I had the car, it happened to me about 4 or 5 times but not with any frequency at any one time. This past summer (2007) it stopped on me at least 5 out of 7 days within the week; sometimes multiple times in a day. It never had any problem starting back-up, but on the roadway, it's scary & dangerous!

I'm into the cooler fall weather & this is the first year that it's turning off in this weather, & it's doing it about 2-3 times a week. I've called Dodge mechanics all summer (too busy to take it in because of schedule), but nobody's heard of the problem & they all act as if I'm making this up. As much as I like the car when it's driving properly, this could be my last dodge!
