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.

The headlights dim, the radio stops, the four lights directly over the speedometer come on and off, the speedometer drops to zero when the dummy lights come on. Periodically the vehicle shuts of as it is moving. This all started happening after the NHTSA campaign #11V139000 recall on the ignition was replaced. It has been to three separate Chrysler dealers a total of seven times. It has been out of service for more than 30 days. Neither Chrysler nor the dealer wants to resolve this problem. They want to sell me a new car!

The van's engine has cut off multiple times over the last six months while driving. The van has to be put in neutral in order to coast it off the road. This has happened on city streets at 35 mph and on the highway at 65 mph. This is a very dangerous situation and we're fortunate no-one was hurt.

The car engine was running but I was stopped and the engine just shut off, I thought I hit the ignition key with my knee. I turned it back on and it shut off again, turned it back on and all ok. Early February the engine just stopped while wife was driving about 40 mph., it happened twice more to her and two time to me, each time shortly after leaving home and going about 40 mph. Dealer charged $536 to fix receiver, trasmtr, & trim ring. Car engine has stopped twice since, been back to dealer twice and they found nothing wrong. There was a recall on the win module deten ring issued 6-16-11 and my car's was replaced on 7-29-11. The systems of engine shutting off were same with recall as happening now with our car and involved the fob area which we paid to have fixed and it isn't. we were told the VIN will show car not fixed so I can't even trade it in and it is still a danger to drive. Found people with similar complaint on edmonds.com.

The vehicle had a complete loss of power. This has had on multiple occasions. I cannot steer or brake or do anything. I cannot start it from neutral. I have to put it in park turn it off and restart it. It has happened while going down the highway and pulling out into intersections. I'm really afraid it's going to cause an accident. This starting happening after my the key fob recall work was completed. This is a major safety hazard.

For the third time in the past month, the vehicle shutdown while traveling. In the most recent incident we were driving down an interstate when it shut off. The vehicle started back up after shifting to neutral and turning the ignition. There are numerous reports on the internet of this happening, but Chrysler says this particular VIN was not included in its 2011 recall for a faulty ignition (or any recall). We're concerned about the safety of a vehicle that shuts down for no reason while in motion.

  • 62,000 miles
The vehicle appears to be stalling while in motion. The steering wheel, brakes, and gas pedal all lock up leaving the driver unable to control the vehicle in any way. This has happened on at least 10 occasions. The local Chrysler dealership attempted to fix the vehicle, but was unable. Corporate was notified and sent out a corporate mechanic who was also unable to fix the vehicle. The vehicle has locked three additional times (since the last attempted repair) and both the dealership (who is now refusing to service the vehicle) and corporate (who have not returned calls or emails) have been notified. After conducting an internet search I see that this is not an isolated issue--it has been reported multiple times to the NHTSA as well as on other websites. This is a dangerous and defective vehicle. Chrysler has been notified of this defect on multiple occasions and is not doing enough to protect the safety of its consumers.

The engine dies while the vehicle is in operation. It happened on both December 15 and December 17. The first time was I was driving in town at about 30 mph. The second time was on the highway at 55 mph. I was able to pull off the road both times with some difficulty since the power steering and brakes weren't working. After pulling over, I was able to start the car again. The local dealer in terre haute, in informed us that since their diagnostic software did not indicate a problem there is nothing they can do and any fixes that are not indicated as necessary by the software will not be covered by our warranty.

On 3 occasions, when I turn off the ignition and remove the key from my 2010 Chrysler Town and country, the car continues to run as if the key was still in the car. It takes over an hour of fiddling with reinserting the key to get it to actually turn off. This is dangerous because I cannot park and leave my car while it is still running without a key even in the ignition. Someone could get inside and drive away without needing a key....not to mention carbon monoxide poisoning in a garage. I have brought the car to the dealer twice for the problem, but they have been unable to find a cause.
