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.

Had van at dealership 5 times for having to crank to start, rough running engine & loss of power. Crank sensor was replaced twice due to wiring harness being out of place, broken open on bottom & had corroded wires. Wires fixed & harness secured. Had same problems 2 weeks later. Some wiring fixed & PCM replaced. Just over 1 month later I was driving 75mph on expressway after having just passed a semi-truck when I felt a sudden "give" and my van began to decelerate rapidly. I pushed on the accelorator but there was no power or response. The engine was still running and no warning lights showed on the dash. I knew the power steering would be affected too (based on this previously happening at about 15 mph) and was luckily able to get pulled over on the side of the expressway. Turned van off & restarted. It seemed fine so I got off the expressway at the exit ramp that was in sight and took a secondary road back to the dealership. They had my van for a week and weren't getting any codes on their diagnostic tool and couldn't duplicate the power loss. I had to take my van back because the loaner vehicle authorized by Chrysler customer care had to be given back since they couldn't find a problem with my van! if the power loss I experienced at 75mph had happened while I was driving in heavy traffic I would've been in a serious accident. Since I was lucky enough to have not been in traffic I only have a dealership invoice to verify my complaint.

My 2014 Chrysler Town and country shut off while I was which resulted the steering locking up, and giving me no stop or control the car;. it has happened on 3 different occasions with my wife and child in the car as well as myself driving.this is very dangerous and I am very worried it is going to cause my wife and my children to be in an accident. Something needs to be done about this, it is a very serious problem!

While driving on the highway suddenly the car shifted down on its own with a big 'thud" and would not come out of the gear and stayed in the 2nd gear till we got to a Chrysler dealer and had to leave the car for about 3 days while they checked things over and finally told us that the module which controls the transmission is bad and was changed. Well it happened again and then back to dealer and finally they told us the module actually was ok, there was a wire which was not soldered correctly and they soldered it.

While backing vehicle out of driveway, I stop and change gears from reverse to drive and hear a clunking sound. Our roadway and driveway is not on an incline and I did completely stop. This incident has happened a total 3 times in the past 3 months. Took the van to the dealership where we bought it and was advised that this was normal for this brand vehicle. I can also feel the gears shift while driving but slowing down. The van is 1 year old and I already don't feel comfortable about it. Thank you.

The accelerator jammed at full throttle as we were making a right turn. There was nothing depressing the accelerator, but the engine was racing at full speed. The light was red, so I was forced to used the brakes to keep from hitting the car stopped at the light in front of us. The brakes weren't going to hold the vehicle back for long, so I shifted into neutral and turned off the engine. When I turned it back on the accelerator was still stuck at full throttle. Only after turning it off a second time, completely removing the key from the ignition, waiting for all the lights on the control panel to dim, and restarting it did the accelerator return to normal. Chrysler insists that it was the floor mat depressing the accelerator, but there wasn't anything in the way of or jamming the pedal at all. It was free and clear. The vehicle smelled very hot and a red lightning bolt immediately flashed with and oil change due now indicator.

Vehicle was purchased brand new from dealer with 199 miles on odometer as it was delivered from another dealership. First time driving vehicle from dealership to home approx 100 miles a loud clanking noise was heard at low speeds during initial acceleration and deceleration. We took the vehicle back to dealer the next day for repair. They found that the engine was missing motor mount bolts. It appeared they were never installed at factory.
