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. Notes: Since the Chrysler 200 first hit the streets, owners across the U.S. have complained about how their “dream car” quickly turned into a complete nightmare because of how the engine dies suddenly while driving.

2011 Chrysler 200. Consumer writes in regards to brake problems. The consumer stated when he started the engine to pull forward to get gas, the brake pedal went to the floor and the vehicle continued forward, so he pushed the pedal about three more times to the floor while he rolled to the pump bypass lane, turned parallel to the curb which separated the station bypass lane from the us highway and stopped with the emergency brake. As soon as he stopped, he put the transmission into park and then engine stalled. The consumer restarted the engine, and felt the pedal come back up. After testing it several times without further problems. In late November 2012, as the consumer headed out of a parking lot, the pedal went down to the floor twice. He quickly stopped with the emergency brake, leaned to the left of the steering wheel and saw the left end of the pedal protruding from the left side of his right shoe and the pedal was on the floor. Also, the engine had stalled, when he tried to restart the engine, it stalled again. He made another attempt to start it again, at that point the brake pedal went back to normal.
