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.

In motion, stationary, or at any time or place. City, highway, and turning those ABS controls come on and off. The entire dashboard lights begin to flicker on and off, lose power seems car is going to not perform. Has power then sometimes no power. ABS control module, , antilock brake system, powertrain control module, feels like transmission momentary no power while driving, seems to slip into neutral then to drive. Loss of vehicle control when this happens. These car actions seriously puts mein unsafe vehicle my mom, my grand kids in danger. And in danger. You never know while driving if these defects will happen or not. Had to fix gear shift, it locked in park due to pin slipping out. I want all and every single recall fixed for free. This has been going on for a long while. Still occuring.

This was the first time I have ever used my cruise control since I have owned my car. I was traveling on a freeway; all of a sudden my car started to lose control. The engine was racing to a high RPM and accelerating. Two warning lights came on immediately, it was difficult to steer, and the cruise control would not disengage even when hitting the brake. While I tried regaining control of my car I tried turning the cruise control off. It would not turn off. I hit cancel on the steering column and it still wouldn't disengage. Finally, I kept braking and pulled off the side of the road. My car, while I had my foot on the brake, continued to rev up. I took my foot off the brake, but the cruise control was still engaged, even with the cruise control light now off, and the R.P.M's continued to be high, so I took the next exit. I put the car in park and turned off the engine for 15 minutes. The two warning lights are electronic stability control and electronic throttle control. The car is still having problems and the cruise control comes on after 40 mph on its own and the warning lights come on.

Since Feb 2012, the electronic throttle control (etc) light comes on when the car is first started & idling. After the car warms up & is restarted, it seems to run ok. If I try to drive the car before it warms up, the etc & the anti-lock break lights come on. The engine loses power & control of the steering & brakes. After a couple occurrences, on 21 Feb 2012, I had the car towed to the dealer (tate Dodge Chrysler Jeep, Inc. In glen burnie, md). After being at the dealer for 2 wks & $180 in service fees, the problem was not resolved. Since 2012, the problem has continued to occur more often. Now it occurs every time I start the car.

Had to move car off block due to street repairs beginning. When I went to drive it to work, car will not go out of park position. Also, in 2009, I took car to dealer on kirkwood hwy in wilmington, de. I told them that when the car goes above 60 mph, the ESC light comes on, car slows down to an exact stop. This happens...as you guess it....in the middle of traffic. Dealer says they haven't experienced it, in my car and through any complaints.

Car stuck park. Found instructions in manual to release brake transmission shift interlock system override by pressing the pink tab. That did not work. Used a strew driver to manually move the gear out of park. Went to garage and asked that the pink tab be replaced. I was told that this was common on Chrysler and that the entire gear shift had to be replaced. Is there a recall?

Driving on highway during cold winter day (20 degrees or below) when the cars computer system shut down and a few seconds later re-booted. The car continued to do so during the drive home and during the next week until I could get an appointment with local dealership. Took to dealership and they were unsure of the issue. Showed them a video that was taken while driving on the highway (very unsafe to have your car totally shut down while going 70 mph). They replaced the ignition switch -- not warrantied, $300 repair. This has happened every year with the exception of 2012 (weather in region was warmer and didn't meet conditions as previous years). Now it's 2013 and the same thing happened during a recent blizzard. Dealership says their hands are tied, but I think this is a Chrysler defective part issue. Something in very cold weather is causing the computer system to shut down, which could cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle. This is a scary situation, especially if you don't know what's happening. I have video of the issue from a recent commute, as well as the documentation of the on-going issue starting back in 2010. Chrysler was contacted on 2/21/2013 with the details. My utmost concern is that this will (or has) caused a fatality and Chrysler seems unwilling to acknowledge the problem with this defective part..

The "ABS" light is on when driving and the brake pedal seems stiff and jumps back up when applying the brakes, found possible recall F50 may be related, but is not applicable to this vehicle.

Vehicle appears to have a faulty esp (assume it stood for emergency skid protection) or anti-lock brake system. The car will slid on minor downward slops when snow is on the ground even when moving at a very slow speed (10-20mph). It doesn't have to be much snow on the ground either for this to occur. It occurs also rather the esp feature is on or off. The brakes feel like they are pumping themselves and have a grinding sound when pressed on. I am unable to control the car from sliding or shifting. It once slid into an intersection. Another time during a slide on a very minor slop, had it not been for the car in front of me being at least 2-3 car lengths ahead of me, I would have slid right into the back of it. I have taken it to keystone Chrysler where I purchased it. They ran a diagnostics on it but indicated that nothing showed up. However, they refuse to actually drive the car in snow conditions to see what I am experiencing and is reporting. I am uncomfortable and extremely fearful to drive the car any longer in snow like conditions. I have a truck which I drive the majority of the winter months which is why this was not detected sooner. Additionally, the car shifts when encountering bumps in the road, especially if you're going in a downward direction and brakes are being applied. This occurs during wet or dry conditions.
