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.

Had two occasions in the past 12 months where as I'm driving along, the engine shut off and was barely able to keep car from colliding with other vehicles on road. Most recently, I experienced a 3rd incident where while driving at approx 30 mph, all warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle lost power and was unable to accelerate. Pulled over and shut off car. And tried to restart. Engine started but was in 'limp' mode and had codes in computer. Had car towed to mechanic and they stated codes P0344, P0340 & B1A35 present. Advised that motor now has a knock in it and would need an entire replacement.

When I attempted to insert the key (fob) into the wireless ignition node wireless control module, the car did not cut off when I removed the key. The car continued to run, I did not know how to cut the car off so luckily it didn't have that much gas and it just cut off after the gas ran out. This was very scary. I contact my local dealership and they said that they had recalls on some Caravan ignition module the same year but not on my vehicle.

2008 Chrysler 300. Consumer writes in regards to defective ignition module recall repairs. The consumer stated shortly after receiving a recall notice, she began having difficulty starting the vehicle. The dealer informed the consumer the parts were not available. In February 2015, the vehicle did not start at all. The vehicle was repaired by a third party company. The ignition module was replaced, which was the part that was being recalled. Chrysler assured the consumer, she would receive reimbursement. When the consumer called back, she was informed her case was closed, even though all the necessary paperwork was in order. Chrysler re-opened the case and informed the consumer her claim would be processed. The consumer stated she continued to get the run-A-around.

I have replaced everything on my front end trying to get rid of noises, like metal hitting metal and nothing has worked. I have replaced my shocks several times and the ride is still rough. I feel that the money I have spent should be reimbursed. The car's suspension has been horrible. I have spoke with the dealer and had him repair several parts and was told by the dealer, these cars have the same suspension problems. Once they get so many miles on them they all tend to make noises no one can find. At what point does the manufacturer or the government step in an take care of all these problems, there should have been a recall issued on them at this point.
