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.

During the past three months all of a sudden the horn starts blowing erratically, the windshield washers and wipers activate, lights start flashing, the doors lock automatically and the transmission will not shift into high. This has happened five or six times since Aug., having occurred four times in the past three weeks. It happens while the car is running and while it is not. With each incident the symptoms become worse and the duration is longer. Last week, I had to pull off the road and wait five or ten minutes for it to stop as I could not see where I was going. Yesterday, it occurred while sitting in the garage and I had to disconnect the battery to stop it. The Chrysler dealer says it is the total integrated power module that needs to be replaced @$524.12. Additionally now at 54,000 miles the front rotors are warped and need to be replaced @ $409. They had to be replaced @ 25,834 and 35,272. When the brakes are applied the front end and steering vibrate uncontrollably. Both conditions are safety issues, have been well document by hundreds of people, and are obvious inherent defects in the vehicle, and should be issues that result in a recall of these vehicles and repairs or replacements made at Chrysler's expense, yet they continue to deny there is an inherent problem. Both issues could result in a serious accident.

The windshield wipers both front and back, the washer fluid and horn all turn on randomly while driving or parked with the ignition off, the doors refuse to unlock or lock, the headlights turn on and off randomly while driving or parked. The dashboard gauges stop working all together or all of the warning lights turn on and off and the radio/navigation will turn on and off. All of the mentioned symptoms occur regardless of whether the ignition is on or not and randomly with no notification or predictability. The dealer wants in excess of $1000 to repair but offers no guarantee that it will not reoccur.

Stuck calipers and smoking rear wheels at approximately 2500 miles. Complained to dealership which has taken several times to fix the problem. After new brakes and calipers again and bearings replaced, again this was done in November 2010 customer complained of rear noises as brakes sticking or some problem with bearings that were replaced. Dealer found "no problem". 3/11/2011 however the car is still making noises and concern for safety is the issue for the customer. Also, the defroster do not always work and customer has to scrape the inside of the window to see out. Dealer could not re-create. Also when it rains or slush the underneath of the car bangs as if something is loose. Customer asked dealership to check also on 3/11/2011 and still the same answer "could not re-create" and found nothing. Customer asked to check brakes, bearings, converter and differential on 3/11/2011 for the 4th time and again nothing was found. Car has had numerous problems from day one including the gear shift coming off in hand. Hot wheel syndrome in 2009 fixed but is back. Customer going on trip and wants this documented.

The bottom 1/3 of the windshield does not defrost this creates a very dangerous situation. During winter conditions, the wipers drag across the icy area and smear the clear area with ice and you are required to stop up to every 4-5 minutes to scrape the windshield when you are during snowy conditions in the winter.
