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.

problem #3

Dec 052012

300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,800 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Chrysler 300 (N/a). The contact stated that when the windshield wiper switch was activated, the instrument cluster lights around the dashboard would illuminate, impairing the contact's vision. The contact stated that the failure was most prominent when driving the vehicle at night. The contact stated that once the windshield wipers were disengaged, the instrument cluster lights would become dim. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, who advised the contact that the vehicle was operating as designed and there was nothing they could do to reset the brightness of the lights. The manufacturer was contacted and advised that they would leave the issue with the brightness of the instrument cluster up to the dealer. The failure mileage was 1,800. Updated 03/01/13

problem #2

  • 2,500 miles
When switching from the accelerator pedal to the brake pedal my foot hits the plastic surface on the upper part of the foot well. This can delay the time it takes to hit the brakes. I removed the Chrysler issue floor mat to resolve the problem. This would be a safety issue with people with shoe size over 11.
