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.

The contact owns a 2011 Chrysler 300. The alternator assembly failed twice without warning. The vehicle was taken to a repair shop and the mechanic replaced the alternator assembly, but the failure recurred. The first time the instrument cluster indicated a system shut down and all of the gauges, warning lamps, and sensors flickered as then failed to work. Months later, after the second alternator assembly was replaced, there was a ticking noise that progressed each time the vehicle was driven. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V634000 (electrical system) and attempted to schedule the recall repair months ago before the failure occurred. The dealer indicated that the part was not available within a reasonable timeframe. The contact was waiting for the oem part from the dealer to schedule the recall repair and was also waiting for the recall repair for NHTSA campaign number: 13V118000 (air bags). The dealer was unable to determine when the recall repairs would be performed. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The failure mileage was not available. MA 10/5

I was traveling hwy 61 headed back to yazoo city, ms from greenville, ms made it about 60 miles from home in an rural area and the car just died-the interior lights went to flashing the car seems to have stalled then the steering got so tight then it just stopped and left me stranded in the middle of nowhere. I paid for the expensive tow, so I replaced the battery prior to this breakdown because the car was hesitate cranking-then after this breakdown, I discovered the alternator was bad-I bought a new alternator-Chrysler has reimburse me for the alternator and labor, battery, and towing. But I wasnt reimbursed for the use of an alternative means of transportation while my car was down after replacing the alternator- it went out again on October 30 and my car was down all of November and December and part of January until roundtree Chrysler Jeep Dodge did a temporary fix by installing another defective alternator because the recall parts haven't been made available to Chrysler at that time and Chrysler corporation advised me that I could get a temporary fix. During this 2 month plus, I'm without transportation and I work 50 miles one way from home.. I disagree to the fullest that it is my responsibility to have to pay for Chrysler defaulted parts of which that is out of my control and not my responsibility- not to mention the medical bill that I made due to fact of me being stranded in the delta area which is known for the West nile virus on a rural road and being bite numerous times by mosquitos. So I'm requesting that Chrysler pay for the for invoices of mileage from usage of an alternative vehicle of which you already have a file and I would also like to know if Chrysler can cover my medical bill as well because this is simply not right for me the customer to endure these additional expenses along with this frustration, pain, and suffering.
