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.

Car has suddenly shut off three times in past month, while being driven. Have had it in the shop for past two weeks. Chrysler says that there is no eta for recalled part to be delivered. No idea what to do. No keys on keyring. Am afraid to drive this car. Just purchased car in early February. First time it shut down, I was downtown, in traffic. Second and third times, thankfully, I was not in town.

I've been waiting on my vehicle to be repaired for over 8 months for the L25 recall, at least 2 dozen times my vehicle has shut down while driving and more than once on the interstate. All I get when I contact Chrysler is a recording saying it's safe to drive just remove all of the keys and they will contact me when the parts are available. It's very intense with a car full of kids trying to get a car into neutral at over 65 mph with no steering so it can be restarted. Something needs to be done before somebody is killed.
