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.

While driving on my way to work I was pulling up to a stop sign before merging onto busy traffic on a main road when my car cut off. I tried starting it again but it would turn over but it would not stay running. After tow attempts I stopped trying turned on my hazards and signaled for the cars behind to try to go around (as this was not easy as I was blocking traffic). No warning lights were on, or came on previously, I maintained adequate 3000 mi oil changes, and maintenance. Meanwhile a police officer helped me put the car in neutral and moved me out of the way of traffic and stayed near while I waited on the tow truck. I am grateful that my car did not stall out on the highway while I was transporting my child. The thought of my car suddenly stalling is frustrating and scary! with the mileage of my car, the engine should be the least of my worries.

While driving at 35mph with the ac on the car shut down. I was able to coast to stop and re-start the car after a few minutes. Several days later the car shut down again at 40 miles per hour. With no power steering the car was difficult to get over to the side of the road. Car started again after several tries and I made it home.

One morning my husband was on his way to work around 6 am when suddenly the car shut off with no warning or indicator. The car was still under the manufacturer warranty so we had the car towed to the dealer where we purchased it (carmax). Upon further review we were told the engine blew due to sludge build up and they needed our maintenance receipts. Even after provided the documents for the last year they still refused to cover it under the warranty because Chrysler doesn't cover sludge build up. We were advised to research this problem by a shop that sells these 2.7 liter engines because it was a common problem among these engines nation wide. Chrysler said they did not have enough complaints to issue a recall.unfortunately they'll recognize this defect when there is a catastrophic pile up on the road and people lose their lives. This link is for a petition from people around the U.S with the same problems. www.petitiononline.com/stop27/petition.html. this is a facebook link to all the people in the U.S who also have the very same problem as well as very same/similar way it occurred with low mileage, no warning, have kept up with maintenance, told same thing by their dealership etc.https://M.facebook.com/pages/Chrysler-Dodge-27L-engine-problems/158874744140697?id=158874744140697&refsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2fpages%2fchrysler-Dodge-27L-engine-problems%2F158874744140697. The page is called " Chrysler/Dodge 2.7 liter engine problem ". please research this before there are any preventable deaths whom may very well include children.
