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.

All warning lights on dash board light up while driving. Wipers come on(won't shut off), if cruise control is on gears won't change. Happens on city street and highway. Purchased in 2014 has been checked 3 times. Temporary fix 2 times. Third time I was told the best guess would cost $1,000. Emphasized that this is a guess. When I stop the vehicle and take the key out and put it back in and restart the car it helps.

I driving to take the kids to school and the key slipped into accessory mode and you lose all power and I called Chrysler and they said there is no recall on my vehicle but if you look there is 2010 but not mine I think is very fishy they said you can take it to a dealer but I have to pay for and if there is a recall for my vehicle then ill get reimbursed and it happened a couple of times last year I guess they don't care about our lives

Several times the engine has suddenly turned off while driving on city streets around 25-30 mph, causing immediate loss of all power, e.g. brakes, steering, etc. And causing high probability for accidents to occur. This is a serious safety issue that has potential to result in serious injury to driver, passengers, other drivers and pedestrians. There have been multiple Chrysler recalls associated with this electrical issue, related to our specific model year (2010); however, we have not been notified by them. When inquiring in the past, we have been told that our particular VIN is not part of the recall. But the issue has now occurred at least 5 times, most recently on Aug. 29, 2016.

This vehicle was subject to recall for ignition switch replacement which was performed in February 2016 by briggs Chrysler in lawrence ks. We had experienced no problems with the car in 100,000 miles prior to recall. After the recall repair, we have experienced 2 occurrences of engine stoppage, both at slow highway speeds (~55 mph), once on interstate 70 (Illinois) and once on Missouri state route 5. on each occasion, the engine stopped and all electrical systems turned off. Due to low traffic volumes the incidents presented no hazard. After stopping the vehicle, a restart was done in both cases and the trip continued. The first was in April this year and the 2nd was 2 weeks ago. The total mileage driven from date of recall work performed to the first stoppage was approx 4,000 miles. The mileage between the first and second stoppages was approx 3,000 miles. I contacted both the dealer who performed the recall and Chrysler Corp cs. The dealer service rep said there was nothing they could do about the issue. Tonight a Chrysler cs rep told me it had to go to a dealer for a diagnosis (at my expense). I find both answers unsatisfactory. In the first case on I-70, if we had not been in a construction zone with low speed limits and single lane traffic, there would have been high potential to add myself and my wife to the 57 deaths already associated with this ongoing problem.

My car shuts off as you are driving, car can be put into neutral and restarted as its moving. No check engine lights appear. This occurs when in motion at all speeds. This has happened on all types of forward motion, turns, high and low speeds. I have not yet had an incident involving backing up. This has happened 8 times over the last 3 weeks.

I was driving at night and noticed the headlight switch was very hot I also noticed the headlight switch was no longer lit so it was hard to tell what setting it was on. A few days latter the headlight switch was on but the headlights were flickering and the switch was once again red hot. I called Chrysler local service department they said sure come on in and we will have a look so I did when I got to the shop they said we need you to be aware of a diagnostic fee $125 what the hell is this I asked I told them it's still fairly new mint condition and I told you the problem they said we will not look at it unless you sign that you agree to a diagnostic fee. This is rape, yet another Chrysler defect this faulty part can cause a fire and is a hazard and a violation. After leaving the service department I headed over to auto zone they had the replacement and even offer a lifetime warranty for this replacement headlight switch so with tax and all I spent $65 and replaced the part and it's been 4 months now with no problems I did keep the old faulty part just in case. So I am here to tell the NHTSA and anyone reading this replace this part before you die in a car fire ans save money doing it and as a bonus auto zone has a lifetime warranty.

The dash lights and other electrically powered components flicker on and off repeatedly. This happens intermittently, while sitting still and while driving, some days no issue other days numerous instances of the problem. The dealer says it is most likely the tipm module and it will cost $1000 plus to repair. As of 7-18-16 the part is experiencing a national part shortage because so many are having to be replaced on numerous Chrysler Jeep and Dodge vehicles. I have replace the battery and now on a waiting list for the tipm. The most recent incident was Saturday 7-16-16. The dash must have go on and off 25 or 30 times as I drove 12 miles to the dealer. By the time I arrived it stop flickering and has not flickered again the last two days,
