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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2015 model year is the first of the sedan's 2nd generation. Maybe they should have stuck with the 1st generation.

My vehicle has now lost power 2 times in the last week. Both occasions have been right after leaving my residence. The main road by my house is a highway where vehicles travel anywhere between 55-70mph. The power is lost when I start to accelerate from a stopped position. The first time I was entering the highway and at about 20mph my car would no longer accelerate(keep in mind I had vehicles traveling at the much faster rate of speed as stated above). I ended up pulling onto the grass median. Putting my vehicle in park, turning it off and back on. All seemed fine after that. The second time I was at the stop sign at the same highway getting ready to cross to the center median to turn left. I started to accelerate and immediately my car stop and messages about a brake service and service trans started flashing on my console. I put the car in park and turned it off and back on. All was fine after that. What concerns and terrifies me is what if I had lost power in the middle of the intersections with vehicles coming toward me at 70 mph? this is such a major safety concern and these vehicles should not be on the road until parts are available and the issue is fixed. I'm taking my car in to the dealer tomorrow and insisting it either be fixed or they give a loaner. I will not put me or my family at risk.

  • 8,300 miles
Driver received recall notice R24 for Chrysler (nhsta 15V-470)in the mail during the week of 9/28/15 - 10/2/15. On 10/5/15, while driving at 65mph, car jerked and check engine light came on. Approximately 2 miles later at 65mph, car jerked again, shifted to neutral, and "service transmission" message flashed on the screen next to speedometer. The electrical problem (concerning the recalled part) caused power to the vehicle to cease and driver was forced to coast to shoulder of interstate highway (in rush hour traffic and through weigh station entrance ramp). Car was completely off with no battery power after shifting to neutral. While stopped, driver attempted to restart the vehicle (immediately after pulling over) with no success. After 10 minutes and a few phone calls to figure out what to do, driver was able to restart the vehicle. The check engine light was still illuminated, and the car would not accelerate as usual (max 45mph, still on interstate, still rush hour). The driver was able to slowly drive the car to the dealership, almost being rear-ended twice. The service manager stated driver would be eligible for a complimentary rental only if they were able to diagnose it as a recall defect. The manufacturer's "rep" was able to determine that the problem was in fact due to the recalled part, and a rental was obtained. The car has been in the dealership's car repair parking lot for over two weeks, with no replacement part/repair on its way.
