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.

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.

I purchased a Chrysler 300 on 11/19/09. I had an accident on 12/10/09. I have learned since the accident, there was a recall on this model concerning the antilock brake system. Since we purchased used, I don't know if this was ever corrected on our vehicle. The ABS lights stays on and mechanics says it is not dangerous, just the cruise want work. We have carried this car back to dealership several times and spent over $2,000. On repairs and now they tell us it can't be fixed and we are afraid to drive the car even though they say it is O.K. to drive. Especially since I found there was a recall on this vehicle and I had a wreck. I ran into the back of a cotton wagon. I applied brakes but did not stop, just slide.
