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.

Made several complaints to Chrysler around November 2014 regarding my car cutting off and periodically not starting.I received a recall from the fca around that same time for "win module and frequency operated button ignition key (fobik's P57".. I have a 5 yr. Loan on my car and Chrysler assured me that this issue would be resolved. I received a letter from Chrysler manufacture customer service/field operations in August 2015 stating that both recall parts had come in and I was to contact my nearest dealer. Well, the NHTSA 14V-567 airbag had come in. It has been corrected.thank you, but although that is also a serious issue, what is giving me a problem is the cutoff & start. My family & I feel unsafe! not to mention not being able to have a car that I can depend on. I am very disappointed that this hasn't been corrected. It appears to be getting worse. Chrysler said the part was in...is it or not?!!!! I need to make sure that my family is safe and my children can get to and from school & appointments. This is ridiculous!
