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.

Takata air bag was replaced but dealer was unable or unwilling to tell which air bag was used as the replacement device. Since the replacement, the gps system does not work, when I turn on the radio I get a bing bing bing sound. Dealer says it is my job to replace radio and gps system for almost $2,000 - labor not included. New radio and gps not available for this car at this time. Local vendor suggested the air bag was not installed properly or the wrong make/model was used to get the job done and get rid of me. I had also read on your list of recalls for this model there was a radio that exploded. I need the radio and particularly the gps to work and the car will have reduced resale value without either of those functioning properly. Dealer ordered a new gps disc and tried to load it to make the system function once again, but the gps system would not load the new disc.

I purchased my vehicle used 2 weeks ago. Initially the vehicle was running fine until I filled it up with fuel. As soon as I pulled out of the gas station my vehicle started stalling as if I was losing power to my vehicle. After a few miles the stalling stopped. In the past few weeks the stalling has become worse every time I pump fuel. It shuts off if I'm idle at a light, it shuts off when I'm attempting to park, turn left, or in a drive thru. As soon as I would crank my vehicle up and go to accelerate the car won't move until after a few seconds and then it just jerks out before a smooth drive. Yesterday I took it to a Chrysler dealership because after informing the used car sales lot where I purchased the vehicle they couldn't find the issue and wanted to keep my car for a week. After 10 hours of trying to find the issue they stated there had been a recall on the fuel tank for 2006 Chrysler 300S. He said that should fix the problem and I should be on my way. So I was relieved to hear the great news coming from the Chrysler dealership. Well after heading home and 20 miles out from the dealership there goes the stalling again last night. My vehicle shut off at the light and again as soon as I attempted to park my vehicle in the driveway. In addition to the fuel system issue is causing another issue that I truly fee wasn't investigated thoroughly. I noticed a recall on 2006 Chrysler pacifica where the stalling was caused by the fuel system, tcm, and PCM module basically dealing with the power train and this is very highly the same issue going on with 2006 Chrysler 300. There should've been a recall on both and there isn't. this is very dangerous as when I stalled onto the freeway I was almost hit by an 18 wheeler truck on last week. The tcm and PCM codes along with the fuel system code were showing in the diagnostic issue yesterday. Help please

After filling up with gas at the same place I always do I began to drive home at the first light I was fine at the 2nd light the car stalled I put it N and started the car up and drove home about 1 block. In the morning I started the car up to go to work it ran fine for the first 2 blocks the stalled again. I started it up again and drove to work. I was terrified. After getting it home I thought I would drive it around the neighborhood for a few days to be safe and not go on the freeway. It still hesitated and felt like it wasn't running right. Still wanting to stall. I then parked it for fear of being on the road and it stalling and someone running into me and killing me. With this many complaints about the same thing why is there not a recall on this problem. Are they waiting for someone to be killed first. I did love this car but cant drive something this unsafe....help
