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

  • 80,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Stratus. While driving 10 mph, she attempted to make a right turn, felt a bump and loud noises under the hood. She immediately drove the vehicle to a local mechanic. The mechanic stated that the failure was a result of the upper aluminum strut mounts and needed to be replaced immediately. The dealer stated that the parts would not be available until 08/14/08. The vehicle is parked and has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 80,000.

Click sound in left front area when accelerating (fwd and reverse) and breaking. Seems to be a common problem with Stratus R/T and the similar Mitsubishi eclipse. Similar complaints and discussion can be found here.
