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.

Emergency car jack failed while changing tire on flat surface, car jack gave out and dropped vehicle breaking rear stabilizer bar. Could have been seriously injured if I was by tire location or under vehicle. The car also has a shifter column that will lock in park and will not change to any other gear, locks shifter leaving you stranded. Chrysler has recall on other vehicles using same equipment but not the 2007 Chrysler 300C. The car jack could not support vehicle and bent almost in half.
