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.

We have a 2012 Town and country just over 36000 miles and the blind spot detection system is failing. Now when I drive the car the lights on the mirrors light up all the time and there is a beeping sound that will not quit. It's a danger at night because the lights stay on or blink on and off all the time. There is not a separate fuse for this feature so you can't pull the fuse or you will lose things you need.

Rear quarter vent window switch may overheat if exposed to liquid moisture. Recall P25/NHTSA 14V-234. My switch was disconnected in July 2014 and I have repeatedly called barrett in berlin, md to see if part has come in and been told "no". it is now February and I feel this is unreasonable. Are new cars being delivered with a corrected part for this problem? I use this vehicle to travel with a pet and need this vent window.

I own a 2012 Chrysler Town and country. I received a recall notice for a switch in the front door that might possibly be faulty. At the time I brought my vehicle in for service and the dealer said the parts weren't available and unplugged the switch. I just received another recall notice and still no parts are available and I am unable to use a feature which is very important to me and I am very disappointed with Chrysler.

My gas gauge indicated I had more than 1/4 tank full. Instead, it was empty, and I ran out of gas in the middle of the freeway, in the middle of detroit's worst snow storm in 40 years, with a toddler in the back seat. I subsequently filled my car after waiting in freezing cold until an officer pulled over and helped me, and my gas gauge went to completely empty even though I then filled my tank. It stayed at empty for a day until suddenly moving to 3/4 full, and hasn't budged since. I have no idea now how much gas my tank actually has. Despite the snow storm on Sunday when the incident occurred, the temps were not anything extraordinarily cold for a midwest winter, and regardless of temp, the gas gauge should always work. Had I not had my cell phone, or had I been in a more remote area, or had it been dark at night and I was in a dangerous area, the toddler and I could have been in real physical danger. The potential disaster that could have ensued makes me shudder. This is entirely unacceptable. Please look into this for other Town and country minivans.

I was first made aware of the recall on the rear quarter vent window switch, 14V-234000, in late fall of 2014. But Chrysler made it clear immediately that they did not have the parts available to make the repair. Then at the beginning of the year I received another letter making it seem as if the part is now available and I can get this safety issue resolved. Well, I have called my dealership (adamson motors in rochester, mn) twice with no luck. The first time they said the part was still on back order. The second time they said parts are trickling in and they will take my information and put my name on a part when they get one in for me. That was over a week ago, still waiting. I know someone else with the same vehicle that went to the same dealership the week prior to when I called the second time (in between my phone calls)and got the same recall part replaced. Why are some people being treated differently" what gives"
