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.

Samie issue reported on 8/24/16 for transmission jerks and slips as it runs through gears when car is cold. Once warm, it doesn't do it at all. The jerks or slips are not slight either, they are hard and doesn't matter how much acceleration there is or isn't...the gear changes are very noticeable and jerky! doesn't matter if you are driving straight, taking a turn...anytime you accelerate it shifts very hard! I bought it new on 3/18/16 although it is a 2015 SXT Charger...had less than 50 miles on it but is currently sitting around 7000 miles. It has done it since I bought it from the dealer. Still does it to this day. Even after running for a few minutes via car starter.

The 8 speed transmission jerks and slips during the 1-2, 2-3 and sometimes in the 3-4 shift. This occurs until the car has warmed up. After warming up it shift as it should. This occurs every time the car is cold and being driven. The dealership has tried to correct this matter and has failed.

Upon arriving home after an 800 mile trip, (in the evening around 10:30 pm) when shifting into reverse to back into driveway, I experienced a complete ECU controller failure and everything went black. And engine died. After a few seconds it appears the computer rebooted itself and the dash came back up and the car restarted. It appears there is a real-time program bug in the car and the firmware needs to be investigated. Had this happened on the road, it would have cause a serious crash. I was then able to back into the driveway. No error code was posted! I believe that the realtime software is experiencing frame overruns and we know that causes runaway conditions like in the Toyota Camry. I believe the NHTSA should review every car firmware before release to insure spare time requirements are met and runaway conditions can not exist. (yes, I used to develop real time software for control systems)
