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.

I had this happen several times after I would fill up with gas. At about 30mph or when I would come to a stop and then try to accellerate the car would stall and cut off. Would then try and restart the car after several attempts it would finially restart. Sometimes when I would reach speeds of 55mph it would cut off and I would have to steer with the best of my ability to pull to the side of the highway. Finially I just took it to the Chrysler dealer and had them put a new evap canister on it and new trottle something on it 600+ dollars.

While driving I smelled a "sweet odor" & noticed had risen & all of a sud the heat indicator had risen & all of a sudden the car stopped running. I sat for 20 minutes & attempted to start again to no avail. I waited an hour, ntried again & no luck. So I left the car & on Monday contacted the service station who inspected the car & informed me it had thrown a piston & my whole motor would need to be repaired or replaced. Charge was $3104.94 + car rental. I had an extended warranty which I purchased when I bought the car & it expired at 60,000 miles. I ask Chrysler motor co if they know of any reason this would occur & if they would grant any portion of this expense? thank you

A/C has never ran cold since we purchased this vehicle, we went to the dealer numerous times over the years to see if it was a recall on this vehicle, but each time the dealer claimed no recall on the 2005 Chrysler 300C A/C system, we even checked the web for recalls but we found nothing. I found the problem myself in July 2005, it seems that this vehicle came with bad schrader valves high and low, over the years I just added freon, but now the leak is so bad it won't hold a charge more than 5 days, went back to the dealer who claimed the A/C system was not under warranty and we would have to pay for a full evac of the system, replacement of the bad schrader valves plus labor and taxes. We choose not to have the work done because of the expense involved. Over the years we have had to replace both lower tie rod ends, the tie rod ends that came with the vehicle look really cheap as well as the after market parts. We had the stability control system worked on twice, each time just before the stability light come on we notice the dash lights flicker constantly, the dash lights has always flickered on this vehicle. The dealer was notified of this problem, but claims replacing the stability part in the steering column would resolve this issue, as of today June 20, 2012 the dash lights are flickering again which means another trip to the dealer.
