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.

When I drive my car it runs great until I get below half a tank. When I hit a half a tank it drops to empty and stalls and dies. I have looked it up and had the car dianosed. They told me that the sending unit is bad.

Shortly after starting and driving the car, within a couple of minutes, the car completely stops running with no warning lights. Just dies while driving as if the ignition was just turned off. This has happened multiple times causing a significant safety hazard as the power brakes and steering immediately stop working. The car is under an extended manufacturer's bumper-to-bumper warranty so the repair should be covered as it is a clear defect. Apparently, because the car just stopped, no codes were recorded as to the nature of the problem. Hence, the dealer was unable to identify a problem. The dealer recommended that the cost of a suspected repair be made by the owner because they could not definitely define the problem as necessary to be reimbursed under the warranty. Recommended repair was done at owner's cost yet the same thing happened again. An earlier model of this car had a recall to repair a similar if not identical problem.

Much difficulty in filling the fuel tank, the pump handle would continuously shut off, as though the tank was full, we had to repeatedly operate the handle off and on for several minutes. The fuel gauge would never show the tank as full. It would also, during normal operation, reach half empty, then plunge to empty, sometimes illuminating the empty light!! we were told by our Chrysler service manager, on three separate occasions, that our car was repaired, it was not repaired !!!! $1500 on a new fuel tank, and hundreds on rental cars later, our car is still not fixed!!! never again!!!!

Purchased the Pacifica touring AWD in September/October, 2013. It was in fabulous condition. A couple of months later, I experienced my first of eight occurrences wherein the vehicle shut off without warning. Once the engine shut off, power brakes and power steering didn't function properly, likely because the engine was no longer running. Five of these eight occurrences have been within one mile of my residence. Additionally, it occurred once in a parking lot, once in an intersection, and once as I was getting onto an interstate highway. A few of the occurrences almost resulted in accidents. I was at the mercy of the other drivers in those cases. I have six grandchildren. I'm hesitant to take them on trips because I have no confidence in my Pacifica's safety and reliability. My vehicle safety complaint seems eerily similar to numerous other owner's 2007 Pacifica safety complaints. I pray Chrysler will investigate this issue to determine what is causing the engine failure before a precious life is lost. Chrysler, please identify the cause and notify the owners of the fix soonest. It makes no sense to continue neglecting these safety claims. I'm certain $$$ is causing your hesitation to investigate; however, it will seem like pennies compared with the cost you will undoubtedly pay due to negligence in the event of injury or fatality. Thanks in advance for hearing my concern, diagnosing the problem, identifying the solution, and quickly implementing your plan to repair the affected vehicles. Safety has a price, but human life is priceless.

I purchased a vehicle end of May 2014. Vehicle has since started cutting off while driving with no warning. I have called Chrysler and was referred to one of there dealers in Oakville Connecticut. They had the car for a week and was unable to find the problem. I took it home and the next day the car shut off while driving, I called the dealer again and was told to bring it back and its been there since September 2, 2014 and they still have not found problem. Its very frustrating that I have purchased a vehicle for safe driving and I fear for my family and myself to drive this vehicle and cause an accident and getting hurt.

When I started the car, the check engine light came on and the word 'gascap' appeared in place of the car's mileage. I read the owner's manual and followed directions to reset the message after tightening gas cap. It had no effect. I went to autozone and had them run a free diagnostic scan which returned the diagnosis of: Evaporative emission system leak. I installed a new gas cap and followed directions to reset message. The check engine light and 'gascap' message remain.
