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 believe the totally integrated power module is the problem. It will not start sometimes and then will not stay running when it does. Cranks and dies, acts like starter just keeps turning over and over after hitting ignition button. We have had this problem for a few weeks and it keeps getting worse. Our vehicle year make and module fall within the time frame of a stated recall and the same issues in that recall are happening to our vehicle. It has happened in our driveway, rural and city streets. While at red lights or stalling while in motion or other stopping reasons. Please look into this, thank you matt L.

My alternator failed while I was driving on the highway, luckily I was in the very right lane and was able to pull over to the side of the road. Had I been in any other lanes it could have resulted in a very serious accident! all of my electronics and power steering shut off while the vehicle was moving. I am very disappointed that Dodge will not pay for the replacement of my alternator because my warranty has expired and my VIN# does not match certain specifics within this recall, even though my car was built between those dates recall number : 14V634000 recall date : 10/08/2014 component electrical system:alternator/generator/regulator summary Chrysler group llc (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2011-2014 Chrysler 300, Dodge charger, challenger, and Durango; and 2012-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured April 22, 2010, to January 2, 2014, and equipped with a 3.6L engine and a 160 amp alternator. In the affected vehicles, the alternator may suddenly fail.

For the past 2 months we have been having problems with this vehicle it's been stalling on me, weather if we are on the highway or in town. Now the amazing thing is that it comes back on, on its own without us touching anything on it, but on the mean time we lose the brakes and steering control at high speed on the highway. The dealer has done all the recalls on it in the past two weeks and still can¿T find the problem. I think this is something the government needs to look into it before someone dies and mention this because on my way to san antonio the vehicle die on me at 75 miles an hour and I had my family with me that day¿ I did some research on this vehicle and it seems that there are way too many Dodge vehicles with this stalling problem and the dealers can¿T figure out what's with them¿

My car power cut out completely while driving along on the interstate at 75 miles per hour. I was dark and I had to try and pull over with no head lights to a safe place to restart my vehicle 2013 Dodge Durango. This happened several times. I thought that when I got the recalls done it would alleviate the problem, however, that was not the case. I am still having the problem. I called Dodge on the toll free # and they had me take my vehicle to the Dodge dealership and they said my cabin filter, air filter, and fuel something needed to be replaced. This should not shut down the whole car if the filters need to be changed. This problem happened several times, April 22, May 16, May 20, May 28, June 18, June 19 and June 13.

Tipm recall issue. I took the vehicle to get the tipm recall. About 900 miles after the repair, the vehicle stalled while I was driving on the freeway. The tipm wire burnt and the fuse blew causing the failure. Dodge dealership attempted to fix the problem again.

"takata recall"sometimes after the car has been driven long or short drives and turned off for a short period of time, when I go to start the engine the starter will grind/engine turns over but will not start this issue was suppose to be taken care of in the summer of 2015. Dealer had our car for over two months waiting on parts but the issue is starting to occur again!(electrical) also I find at different times the interior lights/gauge lights/indicator lights that are on and stay on for a few miles like there is a short in the electrical system. Note: I have never had a recall on the electrical problem.

I am the first and only owner of a Dodge Durango 2013: On Dec 25th I was left stranded with my car, windows open and unable to move it anywhere. It literally died and had to leave it along the roadside since I was with my 4 small children. I was driving, and the car started with a weird noise, then smoke started coming out, the all the ligths on the dashboard started to flash, the temperature was always informed as normal, then the windshield wippers started to work on its own and then the car literally died. There was no possibility of ignition nor nothing. The car had to be towed away by a special truck since it had to pick up the car and place it on the truck, since there was no possibility to have ignition. The most strange thing is that on December 12, the car was out of the doge workshop for the 40,000 km revision with no problem. So far I have been informed that the central computer of the car died, the battery was burned and the alternator died............ all this information is provided by the garage where my car is at. Is this a problem that I have to pay for or is it a problem that the company will pay for everything? please advice me on how to proceed

Vehicle was involved in a side impact that raised vehicle to approximately 30 degrees. Body shop said airbags should have deployed. Explained to the dealer on several occasions and there was no check done to confirm that airbags were in working order. Dealer says that it obviously wasn't sufficient enough impact to deploy airbags. I'm not convinced after reading about defects. Electrical system was addressed on numerous occasions regarding window going up and down, locking system and alarm system actuating on their own, while driving and when parked. Dealer said they could not duplicate issue, but when it finally was proven, they repaired the window only and we were forced to pay to get outer vehicle back. I feel that there is an electrical system issue.
