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.

I was driving on highway and it was raining. My windshield wipers were on but then started acting funny. They were going off the side of my car, going very slow, only going 1/2 way. They were going so hard that I could feel it in my brakes. My windshield broke and they stopped working. It was raining so hard I couldn't see anything and had to make an emergency stop on the side of the highway. I had the car towed to the dealership and they told me the fuse blew and that the linkage wrapped around something and blew the motor and cracked my windshield. I called the manufacturer but they said that it was out of my warranty period. This is a 2014 that I just purchased brand new last year. I work an hour away so my car does have 42K miles but it shouldn't do this. I have a video of what my window wipers were doing when they were acting funny. This video shows clearly there was no crack in my windshield at that time.

Car cut off and would not start. Took the car to a Chrysler dealership and they said it was the battery. They charge the battery and the car still would not start. Then they said it was the tipm, they had to order the part and 39 other was waiting on the part also. It is going to be $1,100 to fix the problem.

My Town and country has the power folding third row seats. My kids and I were sitting in those seats on July 4th for the fireworks show. I was shifting in the seat when my knee accidentally pressed the seat fold button which started collapsing the third row seats on my 2 kids and I. if my kids had not jumped up in time, the seats would not have stopped before causing serious injury. I stayed in the seat to see if I could stop it somehow, but the buttons didn't stop the process. I finally was able to force the seat to stop with my back, but I had to use a lot more force than my kids could ever have done. The seats have enough force to seriously injure a child. This is clearly a huge safety issue, as the buttons are in a location that can be accidentally pressed easily. Also, if kids are in the back of the van and are playing around, they could easily reach and play with the buttons while sitting in the back. A simple button cover or child lockout switch would solve the problem. The van is advertised with the purpose of using the rear seats as a tail-gate alternative, but this safety issue makes that a dangerous solution.

The vehicle was parked in the garage when the driver entered the vehicle. The driver pressed the ignition button to turn the vehicle, keeping her foot on the brake. As the vehicle started, the wipers came on at high speed without having been turned on at the time or previously. At the same time, the engine revved and began to accelerate in reverse despite being in park with the driver's foot on the brake. The driver's door was open and crashed against the side of the garage door, ejecting the driver who had not even had time to put her on seat belt. The van continued to reverse down the driveway where it completed (almost) a 180 degree turn. The van finally came to a stop rolling up against a sidewalk curb with a couple more engine revs. A person other than the driver was the first to the vehicle after it came to a stop. He noted that the vehicle was in park. He shut the vehicle off by pressing the ignition button. The owner of the van and driver are very concerned about the vehicle's and their safety after having experienced this incident.

Huge safety issue. I had a horrible experience this past Saturday. Had my arms full; grandchild, 2 diaper bags, purse, keys. Van was locked. Started van with auto starter. Opened both back doors of T and C with key faub. Set bags in back. Put key on front seat. Put baby in car seat. Closed door with button on van. Went to get in car and car was still locked. Thank god I started the car. It was 89 degrees out. Son had to drive to my house and get spare key. Car shut off, (runs for 15 minutes when started with the car starter), before my son got back, baby was inside. Thank god my son came 30 seconds later. This is a feature that needs to be changed. I still can't shake the feeling that I almost caused irreversible harm to my grandson. Front doors should unlock when you open the back doors. I take ownership for my mistake. Please make Chrysler take ownership for your design flaw.

Recall notification code P25 ( from Chrysler) power vent switch can overheat and cause fire. Went to North point Chrysler, winston salem, nc. With recall notice, only to be told they have a long list of owners to replace the switches but no parts. The receive a few each month. My concern would be that it overheats and burns before they get the switch in to replace. Would I be correct that at that point if it happens Chrysler will be responsible for the fire damage" knowing of this problem should Chrysler provide loaner vehicle till the switch is made available "
