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.

A truck made an illegal lane change and he hit me on the front drivers side and damaged my light, hood, windshield, the computer, and other things under the hood. The impact was very strong and none of the air bags deployed.

The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Stratus. The contact stated that there were no air bags and no horn in her vehicle. In addition, the cruise control and fuel gauge were not working. She also noticed the ignition (where the key is inserted) was smoking. The dealer performed a diagnostic and the contact was informed that the battery was the cause of the failure. She was later informed that there was a faulty diagnostic test; therefore, the battery was not the cause of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 52,500.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,300 miles
My 2005 Dodge Stratus was in an accident on 4/14/06. The car that hit my car was going 55 mph hit my car from the back. My car was going 45 mph and from that hit was propel into the car in front of it and the car in front of me hit the car in front of it. My car was assessment was determine total. The question by the police and the insurance company is why the airbags did not come out. My front nor side airbags deployed. I am concern that this car has a manufacturer defect, which could have cause lives. I am requesting an investigation into this matter. Please contact me for additional information. Thanks you.
