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.

Loud clunking noise when applying brakes to come to a stop and when going over bumps in road/railroad tracks. It has been going on for months. I put todays date as the incident date because it happens daily

I had a low impact crash after I applied my brakes at approximately 2-300 feet before the vehicle in front of me. My tires are good and there were no indicator lights on my dashboard prior to the crash. I slid approximately 100 feet into a car stopped on the highway, because of a prior accident in my lane. When I began applying the brakes, I was traveling 60 mph. I traveled another 4-5 seconds into the back of a vehicle. No airbags deployed. I was unable to stop the car! I think something malfunctioned. The collision center mechanic who is working on my car, tells me that if there was no indicator light prior to the crash, then there was no code thrown to the event data recorder. Therefore, he says the only thing he could do is test drive it afterwords and try and duplicate the failure. After the accident, and we traded insurance information, I drove home, 60 miles and the the brakes worked fine. Why did they fail this time?

The contact owns a 2014 Chrysler 300. The contact stated that the cruise control function failed to work when applied. As the failure progressed, the cruise control activated without warning and the contact had difficulty shutting it off. The warning lamps also illuminated for the ABS and stability traction control. The vehicle was difficult to shift gears and the contact had to place the vehicle into reverse versus drive several times while experiencing the failure. The contact shut the vehicle off and back on, but the warning lamps continued to flash intermittently. The dealer was notified of the cruise control failure and was not able to replicate and diagnose the failure. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V634000 (electrical system) and was waiting beyond a reasonable timeframe for the part to schedule the recall repair. The contact continued to experience the failures. The VIN was not available. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The failure mileage was not available.

I was driving approx 60-65 mph when vehicle lost all power, no steering, brakes or control of car. I pulled off road (lucky), restarted vehicle and it high RPM and vehicle not going anywhere. Towed vehicle into dealership where nothing was found wrong. In the mail I receive a P60 recall for the alternator which were ll these symptoms, indicating unsafe driving conditions. Great!!! not!!!! no alternators to be found. I was told to drive the vehicle as is. This happened several times and towed back into dealership where they see no issues. They insist I drive this death trap. I asked if they would put their family in the car and they said "no". so of course I say but you wan tme to put my family in that car? after two months of back and forth, I get a new alternator put in. I test drive with manager, all seems well until a week later. The vehicle hit high RPM 6000-7000 with no control over accelerator and car didn't go over 25 mph. Yes all of this with no rental from Chrysler, no help from them as well. So I continue to pay for a car I can tdrive. Lemon law unit contacted and filed.

This was a rental car. When starting to brake, my shoe caught on the foot well which interfered with my braking. This happened multiple times. There was an extra snow mat installed by the rental company, which I removed. After that it only happened once. The foot well is definitely not designed to allow proper transfer of a foot from accelerator to brake especially for bigger sized feet. The pedals on the model I was driving are not adjustable. I have seen one other similar complaint on the internet, that user removed the floor mat to resolve the problem.
