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.

I was driving my 2014 Chrysler 200 to drop my father back home. My mother and sister were also passengers in the vehicle.this car was purchased on 10/29/2014 as certified pre-owned from the dealership with 5846 miles & passed inspection on 10/30/2014. I assumed possession of the car on 10/30/2014 after it passed inspection. The car had 8059 miles at the time of the incident. There were no issues with this vehicle since my purchase. I was quite startled when the vehicle lost power while driving on the freeway & started to decelerate in speed. The speed limit on the freeway was 70 mph. Although I pressed the accelerator, the speed of the vehicle continued to decrease rapidly. I remembered seeing my speed drop as low as 19 mph on the freeway; a very scary thing. The steering wheel also locked up, making it difficult to steer the vehicle to safety. There were no warning lights or battery lights indicating anything was wrong. Luckily, no one was hurt & there was a rest stop nearby that I was able to get the vehicle to and into a parking spot. The vehicle completely powered off as the car made it to the parking spot & was unable to restart after that. The engine was checked, but nothing was visibly wrong with the car to cause the car to malfunction the way it did. While waiting for the tow truck, maybe 45 minutes later from the approximate time when the vehicle malfunctioned, my dad mentioned that he was cold, so I tried to restart the vehicle again to turn the heater on. The vehicle restarted. My sister and I decided to drive the vehicle around the rest stop parking lot, and turned it off again to see if it would restart. It restarted with no problem and drove like nothing had happened. Even after the car restarted, there were not any warning lights illuminated on the dashboard. This situation was very scary because it could have caused a fatal accident.

Driving on a well cleared interstate in light snow conditions, the rear of the vehicle sways back and forth like there is no traction while the front end has traction and tries to maintain traction. Once stabilized and only driving 20-25mph when going over a bridge or under and overpass, the little bit of moisture in those areas makes the rear of the car slide side to side. Driving over expansion joints in the highway makes the rear of the vehicle jump to the right. Driving is stabilized on completely dry roads or in town snowpacked but treated roads. The vehicle is unsafe to drive on interstates in even the mildest of any type of adverse weather. The car cannot be driven over 25 mph without out the rear end swaying back and forth. During this situation all other vehicles were driving at or near posted highway speeds without problem.

Vehicle: 2014 Chrysler 200. Scene: Huntington ave. Boston, MA, in slow mid-day traffic (12:30 pm). The engine suddenly shut off. Steering and brakes became inoperable.
