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.

When I try to brake at a stop light, my car tries to quit. When I slow behind another vehicle, my vehicle lunges upon continuing again. I have had the timing checked, but that is not my problem. I can smell gasoline when my vehicle acts up. I fear for my life and the life of my 12 year old son. I am a single parent working for $ 9.00 an hour. I need my car to get to work, but I'm afraid of it, and I just don't have the extra money to have it checked and repaired! I thought perhaps it might have a recall on it, because so many others do! robin R. cassidy P.O. Box 289 oak hill, wv. 25901 (304) 573-7055

The car head lights & dash lights dim when driving. If you play with control switch it sometimes makes them work right. Car stalls and doesn't want to restart. We have done the recall for exhaust. The A/C all the sudden started making noises when stalling and now does not work makes a hissing sound. I have kept this car in great shape and have it maintained & serviced regularly. I have had several sensors replaced and the engine light refuses to go off. I put it in the shop and they said it was because gas cap was loose. That wasn't the case, car is now sitting in driveway unable to start. Had the heads removed and fuel injectors cleaned and car still won't run.

I own a 2004 Concorde. I just have had recall work done on this car. I called the local dealership and ask them if there was any recalls on this car because it has been stalling while driving at various speeds. If you own one of these cars call your dealership. The recall number is 18J18182 recall J18. The recall reprograms the computer.

I did not have a accident. But I have had this car for only 15 months and I've had to take this car in for the same defect several times and many times over and over again especially the last 3 months. I've had it with this car and I can't deal with this any more. And Toyota of escondido where we bought the car can't seem to get it right or give us another car.

Electrical system, engine, transmission problems. Our 2004 Chrysler Concorde lxi has developed many problems over the past 2 years, I will try to list them here. We have had many events of false readings from the brain of the car according to our mechanic. The check engine light comes on as does the oil and transmission light. There has been many times that the car has just cut off at different stages in driving. We have been in stop and go traffic, or going down a city street, or driving down the highway, or just come to a stop light, or just making a turn after slowing down. So as you can see the speeds that the car cuts off varies from 0 to 5 and from 5 to 40 and from 40 to 70 miles per hour. This car has sputtered, jerked, spewed black smoke, ran so rough that we thought it would shake apart. We have had to pull over to the side of the road so many times because the car cut off, that is if it would make it to the side of the road. Sometimes it takes from 5 minutes to 45 minutes before the car will re crank again. We have had the car serviced regularly as it should be by certified mechanics. They have put the diagnostics machine on it so many times and the readings are always false according to them, because if it were a true reading the car wouldn't be running at all. We have been so lucky that no one has been injured or killed so far because of these problems. Because we have had so many close collisions because of these problems, I am afraid for my wife who has to drive this car to work. I can only pray that something can be done about these problems before someone is injured or god forbid even killed !!!

Car sputters, check engine light will come on suddenly, car will stall. Has happened while driving on freeway, as well as stop and go traffic. Has caused several near crashes. I have to pull over when car stalls, put car into park, and restart with no problems. Happens on several occasions, without regard to gas level or speed. Will also cause other components to malfunction, such as air conditioning, radio and cruise control. Has been happening for almost 6 mos now.
