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'm having several issues. First, I cant fill my gas tank up all the way, if I do my truck will shut off at any given time. Also my dash board lights don't work. I was told the bulb is sautered to the dash and the whole dash has to be replaced, that's $1300! currently, my major issue is, my truck not starting!!! I have replaced, the starter, the battery, the battery cables, and recently the alternator! I often need to get a jump and it usually turns over and will run for a day or two before needing a jump again! I have read reviews about this vehicle, and soo many of us are having the same issue. I think Chrysler should do a recall concerning this matter and keep a good quality standard rating with the people that trust in their name!

I currently own a 2009 Chrysler Aspen hybrid. Today while fueling my vehicle I experienced the same problem I have been having since I purchased the vehicle about 3 weeks ago. As I am fueling the fuel trigger shuts off on me constantly. As I take it out to reinsert it, it spits out fuel at me. Once I am done fueling and proceed to cap the tank it spits fuel at me as well. Today I was drenched in fuel because as I began fueling my vehicle which had an empty tank it started to spit fuel back at me. This is not only hazardous to the environment but it?S also a personal safety hazard. I had to return home to change because my pants where covered in fuel. As I started to look for facts I noticed that I am not alone. Apparently this is a common issue amongst the durango/Aspen models but nothing has been done. I ask you to please look into this issue. Today no one was injured or hurt but if I were to go anywhere after fueling and be exposed to any open flame I can almost assure you that my clothing would have caught on fire all due to a malfunction on these vehicles. I have included below four of a few links that have other individuals whom have or are experiencing the same issue. Please advice.
