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.

Vehicle would not start with fob. Has been intermittent problem since. Local dealer (crown Chrysler Jeep, dublin oh) proposed "possible" fix by replacing some electrical component ( $700+ non-warranty, out of pocket) during summer of 2014. Problem continues to this date and looking at registered complaints I would guess the previous owner or dealership (galeana Chrysler Jeep, Inc, ft myers, fl decided to pass the problem to the next owner and let them/me deal with the problem. Also, rear window vent switch was disconnected @ crown during summer of 2014. Neither crown or galeana has been able to provide replacement as of this date. Does anyone other than me see a pattern here!?

We had trouble starting car, wife was out in town and car would not start. Jumped off and started. Had battery replaced after talking to cry service. Car kept not starting with multiple fobs. Problem reoccur ed and dealer checked out car, nothing found - intermittent problem. Problem recurring, had battery changed again on warranty. Problem keeps recurring, changed batteries in key fobs, still having problem, dealer worked with us over phone tonight and got car started in neutral then ran fine. Bringing car into dealership again tomorrow to be diagnosed again but this is still happening. From reading the various forums and compliant.com it sounds like a tip problem.

We have only owned the car since July 2014. The car simply won't start at times. After some time passes, it will start. While it won't start, all the lights are on and battery is fine. We have taken it to the dealer 5 times, but it has happened approximately 20 times (most recently both 12/27 and 12/28). The dealer has tried multiple solutions (upgraded software, replaced win and tipm, replaced ground wire). This situation is not safe. My wife is carrying 5 kids around (3 in car seats). She has been stranded multiple times (while pregnant and now with an infant). I have no confidence in the car, and who knows if the power will shut off while the car is underway.

The L touring town country, I have a automatic front light system that will lower the high beam to low beam if a car is coming in the opposite direction. We had a rain storm that I drove the car through I notice the instrument panel and radio lost power for few second. Couple days later driving at night I turn on the automatic front light beam system and few minutes later the front light, control panel, cab light and radio lost power for couple minutes. This defect could cause a accident if the driver is inexperience driver.

The blind spot indicator system has failed on the van. The dealer said it would cost $1000 for the part to repair it. Because of water, snow, salt, the system fails and now, a safety feature purchased with this vehicle, is now a hazard. We had the van into the dealership service shop and they said it would take a couple of months to get in a replacement. Why isn't this being recalled after reading other related issues on the internet? I am not going to pay all that money for a safety feature that shouldn't fail so quickly and the government needs to do something about this since we have no other course of action.

Vehicle experienced a complete breakdown while being driven. The battery warning light had come on intermittently for two days and had it checked twice and was told the battery was fine. While driving on highway, warning lights started appearing on instrument panel showing failures in brakes, safety sensors and more. Tried to make it to a dealer 20 miles away but vehicle started shutting down. Was towed to dealer and had to have battery, alternator and PCM replaced. Was told alternator was "fried"--there were burn marks on it. Since that time the rear view mirror which controls auto headlights had to be replaced.
