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.

First incident occurred as I was driving down the road at about 35 mph my brake light sensor turned on; without the brake being pushed or emergency brake being on. Pulled over placed the vehicle in park and shut it off. Turned the car back on and the light no longer appeared. As I was reversing out of my drive way I applied brakes, my vehicle didn't stop I pulled the emergency brake that didn't stop the vehicle either. Upon pushing the brake it seemed "seemed stuck" unable to push it down all the way. I was able to change my gear into drive and tried to push the brakes in however, my car failed to stop until I placed my car in park and applied the emergency brake.

The car has excessive rotor wear and intermittent braking issues. The dealer service center doesn't seem over concerned or suggest it might be covered under our premium extended warranty. The problem was noticed early in July and the vehicle is currently in the shop for other repairs. My wife states that the car sometimes has trouble stopping, and has to push the brakes harder to bring it to a stop when the braking problem occurs.

Interior electrical problems from day 1. random electrical components shut off and restart all the time. Also brakes became harder and harder to use, until they stopped working altogether in traffic, but started working again after collision

Brakes don't seem to be working properly. I have contacted the local dealer and they stated they don't have the repair for the recall although they know it's a problem?

In October of 2015, I was driving in the 105 highway & as I stepped on the brakes to slow down due to traffic, the brakes made a high pitched sound like an air leaking. We did not get the vehicle checked right away because I had only had my vehicle for a little over a year and it was new. By December we decided to have our brakes checked by my uncle due to the fact that I had to add more pressure to the brakes, and the noise were more continuous. After it was checked, my uncle said the brakes were still brand new and had no damage whatsoever. By January of 2016, we received our first safety recall notice regarding all Dodge Darts of years 2013 and 2014. I contacted my dealer to make an appointment to have the vehicle repaired but I was told they would send a letter whenever they had the appropiate parts ready. By March of 2016, I contacted the dealer again and told me the same thing. As of today, May 12, 2016, I have received another safety recall notice and no letter or notice from my dealer. The vehicle is still making the noise and we still have to add pressure to the brakes.

While gaining acceleration onto the freeway, I was forced to make a sudden stop. I had plenty of room to stop safely and was not traveling at a high rate of speed. I depressed the brake pedal and the car did not stop in time to avoid a collision with the vehicle in front of me. There were not brake marks on the road and it felt as if my vehicle hit the one in front of me at full speed. I believe the brakes completely failed me and the accident would have been avoided if the brakes had done what they were supposed to. Oklahoma city, ok interstate 40 and mcarthur.

In mid 2014, I was driving that year's model of a Chevy Dart, rented from enterprise while visiting friends in Arizona. Along hwy 17, the engine had shut off briefly. The interior electrical was still on, but power steering and brakes were gone. The exterior lights shut off, but I remember the cabin still had power because I quickly turned on the hazards. I believe it was a plastic turn-key, and it being reignited, that allowed me to regain control. It was a steep, windy road. It was about 10 at night and there was a lot of darkness without headlights.there was a big rig in the next lane in front of me, and heavy vehicles to the rear. It was definitely a close call.
