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 my vehicle is subject to cut off at anytime in traffic, on the highway, making a turn it is very scary with my grand kids in the vehicle. Or any passengers recently. I have problems getting it to start with out wiggling the key. It will also not lock or unlock my doors and trunk they are powered. I have taken this vehicle to the dealership three times already and each time they say that they are sorry but the parts are on order how long does it take to order parts for my car its been a year and half with no results. Do I have to get killed first before Chrysler fixes this problem it is a recall # R03 and #11V-139 and I'm getting feed up. I guess if I'm willing to pay for this repair then it will get fixed !!!!!!!

Since receiving the recall notice in June 2015, I have been unsuccessful in finding a car dealership that can produce the parts to make the repairs to make this vehicle safe. With the aid of the fca group recall assistance center, I have had two appointments made and was assured each time the dealer would have the part in stock. After registering with the local service departments on the day of my appointment, each one came back and denied to perform the required corrective work citing they did not have the part in stock. This is very frustrating and a waste of my time. If Chrysler values their customers, why can't they have the parts readily available" this is a catastrophe waiting to happen. And who will be responsible when an accident occurs due to the vehicle just stopping due to the defective parts? this appears to be more run around by corporate America with no end in sight. Additionally, after reading a number of the complaints, the NHTSA doesn't appear to have enough clout to force the manufacturers to perform the corrective work within a certain reasonable time frame. Very disappointing to see all the in action at the expense of the consumer. What else can be done to force resolution to this very serious recall issue? as a side note, one of the car dealers lays the blame for lack of parts squarely on Chrysler. He stated that Chrysler will only ship one repair kit to a dealer at a time. The dealer is required to return the defective unit before Chrysler will send them a second unit. Is it any wonder this will take years to have all the vehicles repaired. I again reiterate, is this anyway to maintain a customer base"
