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.

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"

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that the key failed to turn over to start the vehicle and had to be replaced twice due to the recurring failure. The dealer was not able to supply the part for an extended period of time which caused the contact to have to get an independent mechanic to repair the vehicle. The contact later received additional notices for NHTSA campaign number: 14V373000 (air bags and electrical system), but the parts were still not available. The manufacturer was notified. The failure mileage was not available. Parts distribution disconnect.

For recall notice 14V-373 replacement parts are unavailable. I have experienced the problem described in the recall as well as other related issues multiple times. I think the manufacturer has exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. I (the owner) have notified the manufacturer. The manufacturer customer service representative was very helpful and called my local dealership to check on the part. My car is on the list. I am not sure what else to do.

2008 Chrysler Town & Country. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle engine shut-off twice and win module replacement issues. The consumer is seeking reimbursement for the win module replacement. However, Chrysler denied her claim. The consumer stated the first time the engine shut off, she was driving on the freeway. The second incident occurred with the ignition, in which she could not turn the engine off, without wiggling the key fob.

Wireless ignition node replacement. I have been awaiting the replacement of this item. Chrysler has directed on 2 or 3 occasions for moore auto to order the part which is available and to replace this auto to a safe condition. They have done this by not ordering the parts needed and refusing to comply with Chrysler directions. This non action by Chrysler and most importantly moore auto has placed my family and myself in danger. Moore and Chrysler have refused to take my vehicle back in to their possession and replace it with a new vehicle. Both myself and Chrysler have numerously requested that moore take action to fix this problem. The last time Chrysler requested moore to again replace the unsafe parts, moore's answer to Chrysler was that their parts dept. Had 12 kits to repair vehicles but they would not use any of those kits to repair my vehicle. They at that time told Chrysler that they would immediately order one for my car and repair it when they could. That was over 2 weeks ago and still no word from moore auto or Chrysler. Usual turn around time between ordering parts and installation is 3 days, sometimes sooner. I request your help in dealing with this 13+ month problem. Thank you.

After several months waiting for the R03 recall to be done, it was finally fixed. To my dismay, as I was driving off the parking lot of the dealer who fixed it I started hearing a clicking noise in my steering wheel. It was never like that before and now there is a problem with it. Dealer claims it is the clock spring assembly and will cost be roughly $500 but dealer refuses to pay for it. They stated they were no where near the steering wheel which is hard to believe since they were replacing the ignition which I thought were right next to it. And I've actually read several consumer complaints that had a similar problem. Chrysler is looking into this but I won't hold my breathe.

The electrical system on this van is possessed. The horn will go off on it's own. The wipers will start going back and forth. Sometimes the doors won't unlock. The sliding door has closed on my son. The transmission won't go out of first gear. I've taken it to mechanics and they look at me like I'm crazy. I've read about multiple owners having this same problem and how frustrated they are when trying to get it fixed. These problems happen at any time regardless of whether the vehicle is driving or if it is stationary. Chrysler needs to recall these vehicles and issue a full reimbursement. They're not safe!
