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 car lost power and just stopped..no check engine light or anything. Locked engine. I always did oil changes and took good care of the car. Not only did the engine lock but the tire rods on the car kept breaking causing more issues..

I recently had new tires mounted on my vehicle and was told that the tire rods were worn badly. I just passed 42,000 miles on my vehicle. I was told by my mechanic that this has been an issue on many Chrysler 300 models around the same mileage. There are even two options for repair. You can have the tie rods replaced with standard equipment but will most likely have the same issue or Chrysler came out with an upgraded replacement with a lifetime warranty. Obviously Chrysler knows that this is an issue and should be an actual recall. I will be having the tie rods replaced tomorrow.

I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 and on Nov 24 2010 my tie rod end broke and had to be towed to the shop for repairs, it has been others with the same problems with these type of cars and I think this should be looked into by someone.

At 36,000 miles the inner tie rods are worn and very loose. Outters are worn but not as badly. Car is out of warranty (over 36 months). When I called the dealer they said this is a common problem and they have seen it happen at less than 36,000 miles. Failure consequences will be complete loss of steering control and accidents. This a serious and dangerous manufacturing defect and should be addressed immediately.

The strut tension arms and tie rod ends had to be replaced at 68,000 miles. They were rusted due to there was no nipple to lubricate them. The mechanic said in another 60,000 miles the same thing will happen. This was an $800 repair.

Took car in for oil change and to have front end shaking checked out. Was informed that the front tie rod was defective. Since I had an extended Chrysler warranty I took it to the local dealership for repair and found that it needed replacement but was not covered under the warranty. This is a 2006 vehicle with under 50,000 miles. Never had a tie rod go bad in anything else I've owned--and it looks like I'm not the only one.
