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 #2

Feb 152010


  • 20,000 miles


Since 2006 my '06 Dodge Stratus has spontaneously accelerated approximately seven times, most recently in February 2010. Idling in a driveway or at an intersection, the engine will begin to race as if I had floored the gas pedal. Only by shifting into park and/or turning off the ignition am I able to prevent the car from accelerating into the intersection or a wall. The Dodge dealer who regularly serviced the vehicle said they could not diagnose the problem unless the car was hooked up to their equipment at the time of the next occurrence. Consequently, nothing has been done to fix this.

While driving a rented Dodge Stratus with the cruise control set at 60 mph the vehicle began to slow down to 35 mph. The driver was unable to get the vehicle to accelerate and pulled onto the shoulder of the road. The consumer stated there was no gas going to the engine and the vehicle lost power. Updated 06/03/10
