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.

Random stalling while driving and also while in park idling. Different systems are effected. Speedometer cuts out then a ding and it comes back. Also the indicators that tell you a car is next to you stay on. The information center stops working. Ac stops blowing then comes back. Radio does the same. When it stalls sometimes you have no power as if the battery has been disconnected. Then power comes back after while and you can start the van. The transmission sometimes will not shift. The charging system light, traction control light, ABS light come on and the millage flickers dimly. A lot of strange things happening. The Chrysler dealer has replace the alternator saying it was causing high voltage. Did not fix the problem. Next they replaced the ABS module saying it was shorting out. Did not fix the problem. I am bring it back to them. I suspect that the tipm is the issue. I am a retired ase certified technician in engine performance, steering and suspension, breaks and electrical.

Tipm module failure. Known issue with this and other Chrysler vehicles. This is the singular part which controls the entire vehicle. When I called Chrysler to see what they would do to help, they got the part expedited for delivery, but offered nothing else to assist: No help with the rental car, no price reduction on the part or the labor to repair vehicle for a known repair issue. This was my first and my last Chrysler product purchase, and I will make sure I tell as many people as I can about how much Chrysler cares about customer service, customer satisfaction and standing behind their known defective product!!

The ignition switch moved, during regular driving on city streets over speed bumps, suddenly out of the run position, turning off the engine. The Chrysler service guys suggested to remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key - as a permanent remedy.

I started receiving recall notices in may of 2015 for my vehicle. The recall notice is R03/NHTSA 14V-373 involving the ignition key. Every time I call the dealer, ziegler Chrysler Dodge in downers grove Illinois, they tell me that they are waiting on the parts, that I am on the list and that they will call me as soon as they receive the parts. After a year of waiting I am frustrated. I think that if there is a safety recall, then there should be pressure on the manufacture and dealers to rectify the problem. Thank you

The engine stops as if you turned the engine off when in motion. It can be restated once you put it into the park or nuteral. This can cause a major issue on the highways.

Vehicle stalls without warning, typically when attempting to propel forward from a stop, but has also occurred more rarely at highway speeds. The electronic stability control and electronic throttle lights come on, power steering and brakes are affected as well. Vehicle must be turned off and restarted. Happened frequently prior to the recall fix, stopped for a period of time, and has now resumed worse than ever. So, so dangerous as I desperately fear being rear ended or T-boned if this occurs when pulling out in traffic, particularly when young children are in the vehicle. This seems to be an extremely common concern based on the complaints and needs to be resolved before someone is seriously injured or worse. Brought vehicle to dealer two weeks ago to repair, they could not replicate and no repair was completed. If you're reading this because you have a similar issue, please document it so that we can bring as much attention to this as possible in order to incite action.

After driving for about 30 minutes, TPMS system started to malfunction. The tires showed proper inflation (later verified manually) when the warning light appeared and the each tire one by one changed from the 38 to -- separated by about 3 or 4 seconds. After stopping to manually check tire pressure which was appropriate, I then restarted the vehicle and TPMS once again showed tire pressures.
