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 drove my 2006 Chrysler 300C hemi with my soon to be wife and 4 year old daughter to go food shopping and was low on gas after shopping I filled the tank up at a chevron station and as I tried to pull out of the station it died. It took 3 tries and it started again then on the freeway as I was changing lanes it died again in the middle of traffic and I was scared to death for the safety of my fiance and small child I coasted to a stop in the middle lane because I couldn't get over either way with cars behind me honking I calmly tried to start the car and on the 3rd try it started and got us back to martinez. It died twice more at stop signs and a light. Very dangerious. I bought the car a week ago because my fiancÉ is 6 months pregnant. And I wanted her to have a 4 door to make it easy on her with the kids.

After you get gas in the car and drive away the car will stall and then you have to put it in park and restart your engine.this can be dangerous, especially if you are in moving traffic at the time.

The car will stall every time after I fill up the gas. Yesterday I went to fill up the tank ( not all the way full ), after I drove about 1 block, the car stalled. I had to drive about 10 miles back home and the car stalled 8 times already. It was very scary because I don't know when the car will die on me when I'm on the road and cars are behind me and just very afraid of someone is going to struck me from behind when my car die on me suddenly.

300C 8-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
In January I filed a safety complaint on this web site regarding the stalling of my Chrysler 300C after filling the gas tank (ODI # 10561779). Over the last two and a half months the problem has persisted, with the only way to avoid the problem was to only fill the gas tank to 3/4 full. On 2/24/14 I saw the abc news report that stated "us ends probe of Chrysler engine stalling" and the article states they investigated 1200 complaints and found 299 in which the fuel system allowed the gas tank to be over-filled. It also stated that "Chrysler updated the part in new cars and guaranteed it for life in cars now on the road." When my Chrysler dealer (who has been taking care of my Chrysler since I bought it there new in 2/2006) was contacted, he stated that only certain VIN numbers were being covered. He told me I could call Chrysler and speak to them. I called the 1-800-992-1997 Chrysler customer service this morning. I explained about the stalling and that I had filed a complain back in December 2013 regarding the consistent stalling when the tank is filled. I explained my Chrysler dealer stated my car was not on their list, and to call Chrysler. The representative informed me that they were only fixing certain cars and mine was not one of them and that I could take it to the dealer and pay to have it fixed. When I asked if it turned out to be the exact same part that was being replaced, would they cover it, I was informed they would not. I am unsure what factors guided Chrysler on which cars to fix, but it appears that they have left out at least my car which has exactly the same described problem I have seen on the complaint web site.

After I fill up (I do not overfill), within the first several miles I drive, the vehicle will stall when slowing down for a stop light. I have also had it that at 40-50 mph it will "hesitate/jerk" like there is a fuel mix issue. This has happened two times in the last week.
