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.

After my car had been sitting at work for about 10 hours, I found that I was unable to get my car out of park. The shifter was locked up, and would not move into gear. I googled the issue, and found that there was an under designed plastic piece in the shifter assembly located under the shift knob that was known to break and cause this issue. I had to tear apart my center console and use a screw driver to manually pull on a cable in order to unlock the shifter and allow me to get out of park. Had I not had the correct tools in my vehicle, I would have been stuck. I had the part replaced, but experienced a second occurrence about 4 months later. This time I found that my car was stuck in gear. I was freely able to move between drive, neutral, and reverse, but was unable to move the shifter into park. To add to the head ache, because the touring edition has a slap stick function (similar to a manual transmission car), putting the vehicle in gear does not cause the transmission to lock up. This fact, compounded by the fact that the parking brake did not supply sufficient stopping power to hold the car at a standstill on even a mild grade slope, I was unable to secure the vehicle from rolling away unless on a completely flat surface. I had to place wood blocks under the wheels to avoid the car from rolling away.

I parked the car in the garage and when I tried to back out the car, the gear was stuck in park. The manual said to remove and the small storage bin and press the pink tab. Nothing happened. I called aaa towing and they came out. He removed the entire top portion around the gear shift and said to release the gear shift use your finger along the cable and push the first thing you feel. It worked and each time I remove from park, I have to run my finger along the cable and push the button. He said that a pink $14 part is defective and needs to be replaced. I called the Chrysler dealer and they quoted me $450 to repair. I called my auto shop in la quinta and they quoted $120. Everyone said that this occurs all the time on the Chrysler 300.

On yesterday I pulled into my driveway after picking up my seven year old son from school put my car into park and the exhaust fan explored. The blades hit the radiator so hard it put a hole in it. The fluid from the radiator poured out onto the drive. All I could do was sit and thank god it didn't happen the day before because I was out of town and I had to replace the shift lock in this same car as it was struck in park. What's next"???" how many people have to complain about these two problems before a recall is issued. Clearly this is a problem with all these cars.
