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.

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

When filling up the car, when I come to an idle...the car dies. Happens every time we fill up the car and happens multiple times after it's filled. When we don't fill up the car, it never happens. We called our Chrysler dealership and the service department said that Chrysler is having trouble with it and they have several complaints however there is no recall on the complaint.
