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 have been trying to get a safety recall repaired on my Dodge Challenger's alternator for the last four months from South pointe Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge located on 9240 S memorial dr, tulsa, ok 74133. I've called the dealership on five different occasions each time no information can be given to me on why my recall isn't being repaired or how long it will take. The last time I called on 6/22/16 I had to leave a message with the service manager, that has still not returned my call. I'm getting the run around at this dealership and feel as if my safety and the safety of others is not important to them. I would think something as serious as my alternator failing causing my vehicle to shutdown while I'm driving or an under hood electrical fire would be of concern but apparently it isn't to South pointe. Please help me get this recall repaired before someone is seriously injured due to the rapid alternator failure that I may experience with my vehicle.

A "service power steering system" message appeared on the evic screen while driving at 40 mph with cruise control engaged with failure of the electro-hydraulic steering motor. Manual steering remained functional with significantly higher turning resistance (as stated in owner's manual) for recovery to a nearby parking lot. Vehicle was towed to a local Dodge dealer service center for repair. Investigation revealed failure of the electronic power steering hydraulic unit control, warranting replacement of the rack and pinion assembly under warranty. The failure was preceded by an associated mil approximately 4 days prior, with complete failure occurring thereafter while (while waiting for next available Dodge service appointment opening).

We received notice of the recall on the alternator several months ago and have contacted the dealership multiple times. Each time the dealership states that the do not have the needed part in stock and that they will return our call. We have never received a return call. The vehicle has completely stopped working electronically on the highway going approximately 60 mph twice. Thank you.

Chrysler Corp. Sent me a "recall notice" mid December 2014 for number P60 alternator. The launch date was December 1, 2014. The alternator diodes in my vehicle could experience a rapid failure. Vehicle electrical system voltage may drop to critical levels, disabling ABS, ESC, ECM ( computer) and cbc. The driver will have almost no warning, resulting in vehicle shutdown while driving and maybe under-hood electrical fire. I have experienced this alternator failure...breakdown.. being stranded on a 1989 Oldsmobile I owned years ago. I have called the recall assistance center three or four times, the recorded menu or live persons know nothing only to say they are sorry for the issue and long wait. I have called my hometown Dodge dealer, where I purchased the car and they have expressed being sorry for long wait ( almost 4 months). I have been renting cars for past three months when taking trips longer than 60 miles one way. I have real fear of being broke down with associated wrecker, motel and repair costs. In summary, this whole thing has taken too long so I am filing my compliant today.

I am wanting to complain about how long this part is taking to fix the recall P60 alternator problem. Chrysler known about this problem July last year, finally issued a recall end of November and states that there is no part to fix at current time. My Challenger is an everyday driver. I drive on interstates and hwys everyday. Knowing my car could stall at anytime without warning isn't a good feeling to have everyday. This could cause injuries or even worse fatalities on the interstates if this occurs. I think manufacturer has had plenty of time to get a part to fix the problem by now. I have tried calling the hotline number on the recall and they just say they have no idea when the part will be available. I'm sorry but if this is something they make everyday in a plant they should of already had the part or the alternator to fix the problem. There should be no reason this part is taking so long to get.

Brand new 2014 Challenger shaker has over 6" of water in trunk's spare tire cavity that splashes on battery and rear fuse box. The trunk leaks on both tire well seams and inside driver's rear fender to the spare tire cavity on incline, decline and flat surfaces. Possible electrical short waiting to happen. Check your trunk under the spare tire for water.
