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.

I own a 2013 Chrysler 300 S. I noticed that my battery safe mode indicator light came on as I was driving. After driving a few miles on the highway I went to turn out of a turning lane and my windshield wipers stated moving without prompting and lights in my car started flashing, the radio went dead and the car completely died without the ability to steer, honk the horn or move, causing me to almost get hit by two cars before I could reach a safe place. The car did not restart. There was absolutely no power to the car. The car had to be towed to the dealership. I was informed by the dealership that my alternator is dead and that it also killed my battery.

I bought a Chrysler 300 about 10 months ago and started having problems 7 months later. The first problem was I got in the car to start it and there was no power, I called the Chrysler dealership to find where the battery was located. The next couple of weeks went to start it again still no power. I took it in for service and the battery was replace with a new one. A couple of weeks passed and I received a recall on the alternator, once again I took it in for repair on May 2015. Now this is memorial weekend go to drive my car once again and the car has no power and no one is open cause of the holiday to fix my car.
