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 got into my car which was parked inside my house garage. I put the car in reverse and moved about 1 to 2 feet back - but had to stop the car as my brother wanted to get into the car. I put the car in "park". as he was getting into the passenger side of the car I started to get out of the car as I wanted to get a towel on my garage shelf. However, before my brother could close the door the car started rolling backwards out of the garage. I was already out of the car when it was moving backwards so I could not get back into the driver's seat -so instead I reach down and pressed the brake pedal with my hand. But it was too late. The passenger door got caught on the garage wall and was bent backwards. The passenger door is now damaged, bent in two places and does not closed correctly.

On July 17 2016 I drove in a car wash parking lot.I stopped and shifted from drive to park. I took my foot off of the brake and I was in the motion to turn off the engine. But the car was in reverse and moved several feet in reverse hitting a steel post in the ground causing damage to the rear of my car. The transmission when from drive to neutral to reverse but not into park. There were two people standing near my car when this happened. If they would have been behind my car it have been a possible serious injury. I sent a email on July 18 2016 mopar assistance center explaining the accident but I never received any response from them.thank you [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
