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 #2

Nov 212005

Stratus 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


While braking and changing lanes a loud sound was heard from the right front and the wheel on that side locked and caused the vehicle to loose control. When I looked at the right front wheel the brake parts had been pushed through the wheel to the outside and the bolts connecting the wheel parts had sheered apart.

problem #1

Jul 032004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles
When I took my 04 Stratus to have the tires rotated at 5000 miles, the professional shop I took it to tryed to torque the tires at recomended pressure when 3 of the studs broke off. No metal should break at 100ftlbs. Lucky I was not on the road with my family when they decided to break.
