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.

The mil came on as I turned on my car one day after work. I had flipped through the vehicle info and noticed that the oil pressure was at 99. I went to get the code read and found out that it was the oil pressure sending unit that is malfunctioned. I have read forum after forum regarding Chrysler 300 vehicles ranging from years 2011-2014 and have found that this is a common problem. Will the dealership replace the unit for free?

I was told that the Chrysler 300, 2014, was under recall, but I was never notified of the recall, I assume, since the car was under a lease agreement. The problem I experienced one day was the the car would not start and the car had to be towed. During the towing, the car was damaged in the front end and now rattles on the left front when the car hits a bump in the road. This car needs to be inspected and the damage repaired since the damage affects the performance of the car. In addition, the original problem caused the car to be scratched in several places and cost me a great deal of time and money. Please contact me so these problems may be resolved by the dealer that handled the repair, which was hayes Chrysler.

On one occasion my vehicle's screen turned white and restarted without warning. Another occasion while trying to use the heat, the vehicle continued to blow out cold air after turning the heat to high. The problem did not correct itself until the vehicle was turned off and turned back on a shot time later. The same occurrence happened with the A/C not working until the vehicle was turned off and then restarted a short time later.

Car has a recall and has been stretched into a limo. Chrysler wants me to pay to remove parts so it can be fixed. This should be taken care of by Chrysler. The car may catch on fire as its a bad electrical issue.

On 01-17-2015 less than a month ago. While driving home, the car surged/hesitated and seemed to lose power. I also noticed the check engine icon illuminated. I was able to move to the expressway shoulder and shut the engine then restarted it, but the check engine icon still was illuminated, and the shifter would not shift. It was locked. No P, R, N, D, or S. I tried to make a telephone call via the vehicle's bluetooth but all my data base was gone. It was working earlier in the day. I shut the engine and exited the car to make a cell phone call. When I re-entered the car I was able to engage the shifter to the drive position, but the check engine icon was still illuminated, as well as other instrument cluster icons were missing and some were present that should not have been. However the car would not move until about 3000 RPM. When it finally did move, it moved very slowly, relative to the engine speed. Finally it shifted to a higher gear and seemed to drive normally. I exited the expressway and drove around the residential area to re-assure myself that the car would get me home safely. It was late Saturday night and the dealer was closed. I re-entered the expressway to rerun to my home. I never knew what gear the transmission was in. Paddle shifters were inoperative. While driving home I the navigation map was intermittently glitching, instrument cluster icons some missing many flashing. Also no cell phone. The dealer claimed the problem was corrected, but the work order stated 181905A1 transmission control module, software flashed. I assumed the problem was corrected but because it took place only one month old car, I became apprehensive. They never mentioned anything about the electronic/tipm failures that occurred with the instrument cluster. At this time I had no idea what a tipm was ! slightly more than one month later my vehicle failed again that was a tipm failure.

As you probably know, not only Chrysler vans are affected, the entire product line including Dodge and Chrysler cars, vans and SUV's. also Jeep. I have a 2014 Chrysler 300 S purchased Dec 2014. The tipm failed 1 month later in Jan 2015, while driving on an expressway the car lost power. I was fortunate I was not rear ended. The dealer did nothing and never mentioned anything about the tipm, they did a software update for the tcm then sent me on my way. It failed again in Feb 2015 the car would not start, and all instrument cluster icons flashed and start button would not return to off detent, a low pulsating sound audible in engine compartment, wipers moving slowly with switch in off position the only charged the battery had 27 error codes, no mention of the tipm. In March 2015 lost navigation and phone paring. At that time they tried to duplicate the problem and kept my car for 18 days. Again they sent me on my way and never would admit the tipm is at fault. I also have payments each month, and am terrified to drive the car even for local errands. Chrysler resolution has my report and assigned a case number for this issue in Feb 2015. They asked to allow one more repair [the 18 days they had it] and would then make a decision for a refund or replacement. This past Wednesday Mar 9, I received a call from Chrysler resolution and the told me they will do nothing ! Chrysler has sunk to the lowest possible level of customer service. They have more regard for profit than they do for safety. My vehicle is unsafe to drive.
