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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I own a 2006 Chrysler 300. When the ignition is turned to the on position, the vehicle fails to shift out of the park position. The failure has recurred again continuously. I replaced it once already, two years ago. Cost came out of my pocket. It was very expensive. After two years it is happening again. I am also having a problem with my turn signal bar on my stearing wheel. When I turn on the turn signal (no matter left or right), after I turn, the turn signal goes off but then I hear a loud click and the opposite one comes on. I called the dealer to make an appointment (I called the same dealer in bartow fl. That repaired it the first time and whom do all my oil changes etc) for these 2 issues and was told they are running behind and an appointment was given for 2 weeks away. Once again, more out of pocket expense. I am being charged $150 just for them to check out the problems I am having. Can someone please look into this to see if a recal can apply to this problem that im having for the 2nd time? once again, out of pocket for this repair is very expensive and I may not be able to pay for it this time due to I am unemployed now. Please help!
