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.

2005 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

problem #3

I was driving my 2005 Dodge Stratus SXT along on a gravel road on Oct 12 2008 and had a deer run out in front of me. When I swerved to avoid the deer my left front tire blew and caused my car to end up in a ditch. I was traveling approx 35 to 40 mph, neither air bag deployed and the entire front end of my car was destroyed to include the front bumper cover, both front fenders, the hood. The insurance company totaled the vehicle due to $5900 worth of damage. Now I would like to know why the air bags never deployed.
