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.

The car will randomly shut off for no reason, sometimes while its parked idling and other times at highway speed. I've had two different dealers try and fix without success. I've spent over a $1000 dollars in "repairs" and still have the same problem.

The indicator lights on the dash come on while driving, witch causes the head lights to go out. I think this is a very dangers thing to happen. Chrysler corporation should recall this model car and take care of the problem before I have an accident.

The car will randomly shut off. There are no codes or warning. It has shut off while moving, and while sitting at a light. One time almost caused an accident with my son in the car! I have replaced the computer, throttle body, and several coil packs. While each repair helped the car will still stall. Very frustrating!

Owner of Chrysler 300 and have taken car in every 3,000 miles as instructed by service center at dealership where I bought it. It appears dealer was notified May 27, 2015 about air bag but never called to put me on alert. Took the car to the dealer once I got the recall notice and was told it would be 6 to 8 working days. Called on day 9 and it wasn't in. Told them I need the car for appointments and to go to work. Was told to call Chrysler in detroit about that problem. I will call dealer once a week until fixed. In the past I've requested a check on the sun roof and they never got the person out to check it. Said it was expensive. Asked them to check trunk because when it rains or after car washes collapses and slams shut. I was told, "there's nothing wrong with it." Has gotten me in the head twice. I'm pulling service receipts to check other problems. Radio goes bing bing when I turn it on and continues for a while after the radio comes on. Answer from service dept: "never heard that before". gps system won't work. Tried to use it and it sent a message: Check the disc drive (words to that affect) tried to check disc drive and can't get it to open. Button is frozen. Tow truck driver was out to charge a battery in another car and heard the tick tick going on in the Chrysler. He said take it in... he lost an engine because he didn't. they fixed it once and told me I got it in just in time. It's ticking again. Car appears to be in a total state of failure. Fix its: Plug adapter 7-19-13; lever shift kit (car won't come of park) 7/19/13; adj tire pressure rating - $10 for technician 1/26/13; replace right head - rocker arm inlet and exhaust 12/21/11; $640 for 30,000 mile checkup and flushed engine; never once told me there were major problems. 66,254 miles.
