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.

2006 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 092006

Stratus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles


The throttle on this car is so poorly designed that when you want to proceed from a stop, the car will not do so slowly, but rather peels out or accelerates so suddenly it is dangerous. Two dealers have looked at it and say it is performing as designed. A technician at the ca state garage almost crashed the car when trying to put it into the car wash when it suddenly accelerated on him. The car only has 2500 miles on it and it has only had me as the driver, even though it is owned by the state of ca. This has been happening since I was assigned the car and it had only 10 miles on the odometer.
