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.

When I start the car it will run fine and then the ignition switch will turn off leaving me with steering and braking power dead. Sometimes I will try to start the car and it will not start and the starter will just keep going so the only way I can get the starter to stop is to put it in drive. This has happened several times and fortunately I was driving at low speed or stopped. Had it happened at higher speeds or on the freeway, it could have resulted in a deadly crash. I took it into the dealer and they said it was a defective ignition switch and replaced the switch. So far the problem has not recurred. My complaint is also that I have asked the dealer and Chrysler motors for reimbursement, $450 and so far they have refused because it was not an item on their recall list and I was out of warranty on mileage. I know that Chrysler has known about defective ignition switches for several years so why have they not notified owners. This is a very dangerous problem, like GM had.
