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.

2013 Chrysler 200 convertible was bought new and a few weeks after purchase, this cars transmission got stuck in 1st and would not shift...this is an automatic transmission...took it in and was told it was fixed...long story short...this same problem has occurred 7 times...the dealership...glen E. thomas in signal hill, ca. Did all they could to repair the car and were always very nice and accommodating. This is a factory problem and it was just in again a 7th time in May happens on the freeway and my wife refuses to drive the car anymore...I have a new car, not even a year old and less that 6000 miles and cannot get the transmission to work the driver side door and window rattles and is very has been in 2 times for the car but it is not working properly and is very stressful and disturbing to me and my wife because we are always nervous that the problem could happen again and leave us in danger.

This vehicle does not drive properly. The rpms run high and many times does not shift out of 5 gear while driving at high speeds. I have complained about this since I bought the vehicle, however have been told "that is how this car drives", "it is ok to red line your car". after several complaints the dealership GM finally agreed there was something wrong and the "flashed" my car. After that I was getting 30 mpg highway and it was shifting without me having to take my foot of the gas. Less then 5,000 miles later it is back to the way it was. Dealership now says it is fine, yet I am averaging on the interstate 22 - 25 mpgs. I am so frustrated with the service I am receiving.

The car stalls when slowing down for a stop sign or when taking of from a stop. At one point it stall going about 20mpg. This is really unsafe, with no signs it just stalls.

Malfunction light came on during date of purchase. Tech said that it was due to the battery being jump started. Light came on again, and code came back as smoke signal...I was told that the smoke test passed. Took car to another dealership. They kept the car for five days and found the following errors: Seal for the trans filer missing, leaking esim. The problems were stated as fixed. However to date, hot oil message is coming on. Also the car is cutting off shortly after engine is started. Car rattles when at a stop light and then shuts off.

I bought my 200 in December 2012. Starting in January, the car idles very strangely. When I start the car the engine rattles as if it does not want to start. The brakes have always squeaked as if they need to be replaced and when I asked the dealership, I was told that this is normal and every car squeaks. Lastly, it is difficult to drive during the evening time because of the low lighting. I do not believe I will ever by Chrysler again because the car runs as if it 60,000 miles old. I am afraid it is going to break down any moment. I wish I would have bought the Honda Accord.
