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.

Recall L25/ NHTSA 14V-373 was published on 10/10/14 and I got noticed by mail. On Oct 27 I tried to make a service appointment to have the problem fixed but was told that no parts were available and that I would be notified (both my dealership and the Chrysler group recall assistance center claimed this). I have had no follow up from Chrysler or its dealership. I followed up today again and was told that no parts were available. I believe that this is unacceptable and herewith want to file an official complaint about the slow handling of this recall. How can I use this car during our upcoming christmas trip of more than a 1000 miles with an urgent and important safety recall not being fixed. I believe the way how this is handled by Chrysler and the oem manufacturer responsible for the fobik is gross negligent! both should be fined severely for their lack of timely response!

My son and a friend took my car to a movie. The car suddenly quit running while driving on a residential street at approximately 25mph. There have been two recalls on the vehicle concerning the win module and win module detents. In 2010 I experienced the same exact issue, had the car towed to a dealership and they supposedly fixed the problem. This recent incident was exactly like the first. The dealership is refusing to replace the module and wants me to pay $600 to have it fixed. The car will not start without this repair. I am at wits end wondering why it is my responsibility to pay for a known safety issue repair.

I own a 2008 Chrysler Town and country. We received the recall notice for NHTSA campaign number 14V373000(electrical) was received in August or September 2014. I have contacted the dealer on multiple occasions was informed that the parts needed to repair the vehicle are not available and no estimated time to receiving the parts could be given. The dealer told me that it would likely be several more months. This is unacceptable.

I had received notice that my Chrysler Town & Country was possibly part of a recall for the fobik issue. I made an appt with the dealership & it was confirmed that the vehicle was part of the recall. While driving with my four children down at 45 miles per hour, the engine did "unintentionally shut off". fortunately, I was in an outside lane and was able to coast to the edge of the road without incident. I contacted the vehicle safety hotline that day regarding my concern that there are no parts available to fix a known problem & spoke with [xxx]. I was added to an email notification list at that time. To date, I had not been contacted. I spoke with [xxx] from the vehicle safety hotline today & was directed to call Chrysler. I spoke with a representative at 800-992-1997 to explain my concerns. They stated that parts were not available and that there was no one else to talk to about it. That isn't a satisfactory answer. I need a safe vehicle for my family. What else can be done? information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Van is under the new expanded ignition switch recall. Ignition switch is getting looser and looser. Part is on backorder supposedly, have done as the dealer and Chrysler recommend and removed everything off my key ring. Still getting loose. If this thing breaks down again for the 3rd time this year I don't know what I'll do. From what I understand it's a fatal issue as well, vehicle is non functional once ignition switch falls out.
