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.

Have had 3 incidents in the past few months where the car would not shut off when the key was in the off position. The most recent occasion on 3/26/15 the car had been shut off and the key removed from the ignition and it continued to run with the headlights and interior lights still on. In each case, it has taken numerous tries, including putting the car in gear and moving it to be successful in shutting it down. Contacted Chrysler group and was told to take it to a dealership and have a diagnostic done, and if it was determined to be the failed ignition switch ( which I received a safety recall for in October 2014), they would cover the cost of the diagnostics. I contacted a local dealer and made appointment to have diagnostic done. Upon arrival, I informed them of what the issue was, and was told I would be waiting upwards of 3 hours to have it completed and even if they found that the issue was related to the recall, which I was told it most likely was, there was nothing they could do, as there were no replacement parts available at this time and they could not tell me an approximate date when the replacement parts would be available. I did not wait the 3 hours to have the diagnostic done. I am nervous to drive the car, as now that I am having an issue and knowing that there could be more issues related to the ignition switch recall (possible shut down while driving, etc. Etc.). I know there are many other 2008 Chrysler 300 owners that are in the same position. This recall is taking too long to start resolving, and at least for my part in it, I have contacted a family lawyer and relayed the information, in the event that I am hurt or killed in an accident related to this safety recall. I called the vehicle safety hotline and was given the reference # [xxx] for filing a complaint. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I have been having issues with starting the car as well as the car starting by itself without me even turning the key to start position. Electrical issues are also present in starting car, the problem is getting worse day after day. I have stayed stranded at several different places just trying to start the car. I have had 2 registered automotive shops check out the problem I am having with the car & they both have told me it's the ignition. I am a female & can not continue to be stranded trying to start the car & losing electrical power to lock doors/ roll up windows etc... since this is a recall on my car, it should be fixed immediately by the dealer/Chrysler group, I should not have to put the money to fix it myself, if it causes more problems/issues with the car then the Chrysler group should be responsible for further problems with my vehicle. Please contact me at 505-864-8206 so we may resolve this issue. Thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
