My car falls under the gas tank replacement program but the dealers keep putting off the replacement stating no parts availability. I was recently nearly hit while making a legal U turn when the car stalled twice leaving me sideways across 2 lanes of oncoming traffic. I do not want to sell my car but the situation is scary enough for me to park the car. But waiting a year for the part is ridiculous.

I stopped to get fuel and started off on my trip I went to get on the freeway and the car stalled when trying to merge into traffic. Had to Dodge a few cars and coasted to the side of the road. I tried to restart the car a few times and it finally restarted. I continued on my trip without any problems until I stopped and filled the gas tank back up. This time I was in heavy traffic and had no place to go, pissed off a few people for blocking traffic but finally got the car restarted.

After filling up the car with fuel it would stall when driving it. On 11/23/12 I took the car to my local dealer, santa maria Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge. They informed me the fuel tank would need to be replaced because the vent valve on fuel tank was faulty. I paid for the repairs at cost of $1607.25 on 11/28/12. I recently became aware of a recall for this problem but they say my VIN# does not qualify. The problem was a scary situation. I could have been seriously hurt if the car stalled in traffic. Apparently I am not the only one who experienced this problem.

Magnum 8-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
After filing the fuel tank, the engine will sputter and stall. When it first began to happen to me, it seemed like I was getting bad gas. Now I know that this occurs primarily after I make a left turn and is due to a part that is inside the fuel tank. The part fails and the result is this problem with the engine stalling. This is a known problem with older Magnums, chargers, and Chrysler 300's. it is dangerous!! this has happened to be on interstate 95 and just when I got into the travel lane the engine died. I think the left turn I made was a few mile before I got to the entrance ramp and it caught me off-guard. I was lucky to be able to pull over and get onto the shoulder. This is a design failure and is not normal wear & tear. All of the older cars mentioned here can be affected. I assume you have received prior complains about this issue. Dodge is no help, but should be required to fix this problem. Thanks.

I have been experiencing a safety hazard with my 2006 Dodge Magnum rt for several months. When the vehicle is filled up with gas it will stall out when driving down the road. This happens regardless of what speed you are going and occurs every time the car is filled up. I have done extensive research and found that I am not alone with this issue and that the warranty was extended for certain VIN codes through Chrysler. Unfortunately my VIN was not a part of that warranty extension even though I am experiencing the exact issue that this covers. There have been several times where the car has stalled while driving in traffic which could have resulted in a major accident, luckily I was able to avoid any collisions. Maybe next time I won't be so lucky though...
