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.

The engine just stall out with no warning while driving, it mostly do it after filling the gas tank to the half full mark, once it get close to the red mark, the engine run normal. And when its at a complete stop the engine also stall out.

I bought my car in August 2006 and in October 2006, I had engine lights problems from that date. I took it to the dealership that I bought it at and they would not do anything. This is my fifth complaint and I just had it repaired this year after several other things.it was still under warranty when I first contacted your office. I spoke with someone and they told me that it was covered and to take it I for repair then I had to pay for it myself. That's really sad when you purchase and rely on the company to uphold their warranty agreement. He quit on me on the highway after the the water seal popped and the dealership informed me that it should have never happened and I wrote to you about that and you did not reimburse me.

2006 Chrysler 300C srt8 6.1L stalls. Once normal idle temperature reaches 200 degrees, the car starts to rev up and down and eventually turns off. No codes. Replaced both camshaft and crankshaft sensor. This is annoying and dangerous because sometimes the car accelerates while on gear!! or completely dies while driving. I had a minor (small bump) accident at a gas station. Idle started to fluctuate and at one point, the car jumped a bit, I hit the brakes but I came into minor contact with the car in from of us. Helps us to get this resolved.

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 engine shuts off while I'm driving and in reverse. I can restart it with no problem as long as I immediately step on the gas peddle. I have to shift into neutral to keep the engine running while at a stop light & back to drive. When I turn the key I do not hear the fuel pump like I used too! I've had repairs costing$509.96 and still have the same problem! I think my fuel pump is not working correctly or about to stop working! is there a recall for the fuel pump?
