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.

Warning lights on both mirrors for blind spot detection stay on always - with the ding ding ding sounds ringing on and off - weather driving down the road or sitting still parked, if the car is running, the problem is there. I believe this unsafe issue should be fixed by a recall, as it is a problem that is very unsafe & dangerous, many folks whom have purchased this vehicle are experiencing the same unsafe problem! I paid for this feature on the vehicle, to add safety and now it is causing just the opposite, unsafe driving conditions. This really concerns me, a safety feature failing on all these cars and especially at such low mileage. With this feature malfunctioning, it is much more dangerous than texting or talking on the phone while driving. What is the criteria to get a recall in place, do people have to have accidents or die to get a problem recalled, how is it decided.

All safety features suddenly stopped working. The blind spot monitoring, rear cross path detection, park assist, rear view camera, and compass all stopped. I was told this is from driving the car in the winter! apparently, there are two modules located behind the bumper that have corroded severely. The snow and salt is thrown off the tires directly on these integrated units that are not sealed sufficiently and so the units corrode and fail. This is absolutely a design failure. These critical units that run all safety equipment should not be placed so carelessly and not properly protected. Please see Chrysler recalls and fixes this design failure. Thank you.

I was driving our Town and country van on the interstate and was going to change lanes to my left. The blind spot detection did not come on to warn me that a car was there. Almost hit the other car. This has happened many times since. On 9-27-1014 driving out of the driveway at our house the blind spot detection did not pick up the garbage can on the side of the drive and hit the can causing $ $361.53 of damage. Told Chrysler but they said no recalls for this. Now the blind spot system is not working at all and the dash is dinging all the time. I see there was a recall for a 2009 Town and country van for this problem no. J01. Many people are complaining on the internet about this fix costing $ 2,000 at the dealer. Seems there should be a recall for this 2012 van as safety has been lost and crashes are expected to happen.

Blind spot monitoring system illuminates constantly. System has failed and can not detect vehicles in the blind spot. Unable to turn off system unless paying for costly repair. Lights and chimes are distracting to the driver and could result in unnecessary avoidance maneuvers.
