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.

I was driving home on 4/17/15 in my 2011 Dodge Challenger when all the warning lights on the dash started flashing, the radio was going on and off, the lights went dim, but the scariest thing was the car suddenly lost all power, it was still running but it acted like it was on 2 cylinders, almost got rammed by the car behind me!! had car towed to dealer, will call them tomorrow.this is a very dangerous flaw in the system and will result in future loss of life if not corrected!!!!

Just got through an intersection instrument panel all lights started flashing then car shut down could not steer had no hazard lights nothing it is part of a Chrysler recall was a very dangerous situation it was dark my car is black and I had no way of letting traffic know I was there if I had a flare in the trunk I couldn't get to it as latch is electrical and so it didn't work. I had it towed to the dealer who said he couldn't help me for weeks and no courtesy car was available to me and if it was a recall it cold not be fixed because there is no fix for the recall yet they are supposed to give me priority service after speaking with the recall center but I am to pay all charges and then try to get reimbursed from Chrysler. The Chrysler care center said they would pay for the new alternator but not the rental or diagnostic charge and that the shutdown could happen again, until they can come up with a fix for the alternator issue recall P60 this was a very dangerous situation because of a faulty manufactured part I don't feel I should have to incur any expense or be forced to drive an unsafe car I bought the car in good faith and I expected it to be safe. My car was not looked at today as promised hopefully tomorrow I did not receive any call back from the dealer. I think its criminal that owners of these vehicles are expected to drive them until they can get to fixing the part had I been on the freeway in 70 mph traffic I doubt I would be here to write this complaint. Several cars and semi trucks came very clos to hitting my car until a state trooper could get there to provide flashing lights while waiting for the tow truck. I had no warning the car just completely shut down.

Challenger 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
I own a 2011 Dodge Challenger that was purchased brand new off the show room floor in the latter part of 2011. I was leaving work on this Sunday and pulled out of the parking lot to merge into traffic. Within five or ten minutes of having pulled off my car began a complete shut down. The windows wouldn't go up or down. The power steering went out. The radio and lights all went black. Also the car cut off completely while I was driving!!!! I nearly caused a major accident in the middle of a busy intersection. Luckily the surrounding drivers were paying attention and did not hit me. Im mortified with this experience. My car is only three years old and I'm currently paying a nearly $600 note on it. It's so unacceptable and to make matters worse, when I contacted Dodge, the only recourse they advised was to contact the dealer and have the repairs done and apply for reimbursement whenever the recall is announced. When I asked if they would be willing to have a dealer come pick up the car as it is currently inoperable, they said that the towing fees would be my responsibility as well & probably would not be reimbursed. The customer service reps both times I called were of little or no help at all and seemed genuinely unconcerned that my vehicle cut off while I was driving!!! my call to the dealership was the same. I have had all maintenance for my vehicle performed at the Dodge dealership from oil changes to tire replacement. I've been a loyal customer & even done referrals for the dealership. This is by far the worst experience I've had with any car company and I am so disappointed. I will never purchase anything else from the Chrysler brand. I noticed the recall even includes the cars they are currently selling on the lots (2014 models) so please beware and warn anyone you know to stay away from Chrysler & its products. They don't care about you or your safety.
