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.

My vehicle stalled while turning into a driveway. I had to coast to a stop and restart the vehicle. It has stalled many times on me while at a low speed. Usually it happens while turning corners, going into driveways and sometimes at stops. I have almost been involved in accidents because of it stalling while turning. I have taken the car to my mechanic several times and have had a myriad of things fixed but to no avail it still does the stalling. If you know of any problems with this vehicle stalling I would like to know what I can do to fix this problem and if Chrysler has had this problem with other vehicles. I feel unsafe as I never know when it will happen.

I own a 2009 Chrysler 300C, which has been having consistent problems with the engine shutting off while driving down the busy highway. The vehicle is stalling, quitting, not starting on the first try, fail to keep running once started, or completely stop on its own recognizance. I feel unprotected because my vehicle automatic shut off and could cause death or serious injury. The performance of this vehicle and its equipment is leading me into unreasonable anxiety for my safety due to the sudden stopping in heavy traffic, leading to no steering power, no electric signals, and grave possibility of death. This vehicle is only five (5) years of age and should not be showing signs of inefficiency.

While driving on the freeway my Chrysler 300 died while I was accelerating into heavy traffic going approximately 55 mph. The vehicle just cut itself off. It lost power to the engine, I lost my power steering, nor could I brake. I was close to being slammed in the rear. I was able to maneuver it to the edge of the freeway because I was luckily in the right hand lane. It took several tries to get the motor to restart. This power loss has happened on several occasions and is very frightening. From time to time I must continue to turn the ignition to the start position. It appears that there is play within the ignition switch and no contact is made preventing it to power on.

I have replaced parts to my front end three times. The part has cost me 125 plus labor each time. Im not sure of the name of the part, but U will know when it needs to be replaced because every time U hit a bump in the road it sounds like your front end is about to fall off. And I have replaced my thermostat housing unit twice, it literally melted twice!
