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.

I own a 2009 Chrysler 300C is exhibiting the following circumstances. Stall is leading to unnecessary endangerment of my and other highway users' survivability. This automatically raises the risk of death for consumers utilizing the roadways be it two lane or multi- lanes, city or rural roads. My 2009 Chrysler 300C is supposed to be a high performance vehicle and these deficiencies only add insult to injury. I do not believe the excuse of "we don't know" will satisfy the family of a loved one lost in a vehicle accident. I request a fail-safe protection when the following defects exist, I.e. stall, sudden shutdown, loss of power, and in traffic appears out of the ordinary. Chrysler is explicably compounds this stall safety problem by not providing the most efficient mechanical expertise available and swiftly correct this safety issue as an issue to consumers for satisfactory of this safety hazard. I have performed the initial risk assessments and potential hazards that may arise during the execution of mechanical malfunctions of my 2009 Chrysler 300C. The ignition is either loose and not communication with the other components to properly operate the vehicles and continue to shut off, stall, stop, etc. Etc. Etc. This empirical evidence points in the opposite direction of safety and further more compound this problem. There is a need and explanation given for these destructive mechanical malfunctions. I do not want a death, crash, injury, or fire.

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.

My Chrysler 300 keeps loosing power. While driving on the highway at 65 mph the vehicle decides to lose its electrical power and the engine completely turned off. There was no braking power, the steering had no play but I was able to maneuver off to the left side of the road in medium traffic. I believe the keyless ignition system has a horrific defect. It is losing contact. The double sided integrated key, I believe, is losing contact with the integral ignition switch which also contributes to inconsistent starting procedure.

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.
