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.

Went in to work drop some papers off, come out car want do anything. Had to call tow truck to get towed in. Took about a week for them to find what was wrong with it. My computer system shut down. From the time I got it back, up into June of 2015. When turning on windshield wipers dems the entire inside lights. One day coming home from work, the inside goes black on dash board, come to a stop car shuts off. Started right back up. Radio didn't come back on for a few minutes. The next morning go to ruin errands, same thing. To the dealership I goes. They keep it look it over gives me a call and says it is the alternator which had a recall, we put a new one in there, the battery connector has to be replace. Get my car back same problem, stalling out, if hit a bump radio adjust loud as ever or very low. Key fob not reading, lights still dems. Put the connector on still the same problem. Took it back in two days later new radio, new key fob, new radio. Get my car back still having the same problem, want me to bring it back every time this happen who has time for that. Still same problems going on why this junk hasn't been recalled.

I got out because it was in the middle of the road so for my safety I left it there finally a few guys stopped pushed it to safety till the tow truck arrived it was towed to the dealer again which they kept until Friday the 20th I refused to drive it so the dealer had someone to drive it to my home at that time I pleaded with Chrysler to let me keep the rental car because I had a funeral I had to attend on Saturday 21st they told me no that my car was ready and if I didn't drive it they would consider it to be abandoned so I said ok but I would be very upset if I missed this funeral! so drove to the house as we lined up for the funeral everyone one was in place as we proceed to leave the house for the funeral guest I went to accelerate and my car would not move it cut off in the middle of the funeral line I was so embarrassed I didn't know what to do so needless to say I missed the funeral and the graveside service as well and as of today Friday 27th my car is still at the dealership with no answers !!! it's simply just give me a new car if I wanted a lemon I would have brought one.

Battery saver message went on. Lights flickered.since there is an upcoming recall on alternator with the 2014 models manufactured April 22, 2010, to January 2, 2014 and my cars manufactured date is may of 2014 I hope you will include all 2014 models for the recall. Although my alternator has yet to completely fail the history of the current failures began with battery saver messages and electrical problems. I would like to get this resolved before my car loses power on the highway with my 3 children in it and possible getting hurt. Also if the alternator in this car is different than the recall and is showing problems in my car Dodge might be replacing the current recall alternators with the alternator in my car.

Radio shut off and would not turn on while driving to destination. Once I got to my destination, I had the car in park, but the engine still turned on. All of the gauges in the dashboard started going crazy and then the inside lights started flashing. The car then shut off and had absolutely no power whatsoever. Could not even put my car in "neutral" to move it out of the middle of the road because it is "push to start" and has no way of getting power to the transmission to be able to put it in neutral. I was in the middle of the road waiting for Dodge's roadside assistance to get there from 12:00 am until 5:30 am. The tow truck eventually came and took it to the nearest dealership to find out that my alternator went out and completely drained the battery as well. My car was only 3 thousand miles outside of the 36K bumper to bumper warranty and only 2 years old. Well timed, Dodge!! way to get out of paying for your mistakes!!

Engine light came on while driving. Took it in for service and dealer stated that it's an O2 sensor malfunction. Dealer had the car for 2 days. They claimed that they replaced all O2 sensors. Engine light came on again after 1 week. Took it back to the same dealer and they stated that the software had to be upgraded. After 3 days, check engine light came on again. Took it back to the same dealer and they stated that the wiring harness has to be change. Service person said that he would have to order parts and as soon as it arrives. He will contact us. After 4 days, we called the dealership and they said that the service person that took care of us from day 1 had been terminated. Spoke to a new service person and he stated that he 's not aware of this problem. We insisted that the car be diagnose as soon as possible and gave us an appointment on 7/19/14. In the mean time, the car cannot be driven too far. Performance of the car is very erratic and would feel that it would shut off. Although, service person stated that is ok to be driven.
