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.

I received a safety recall for my vehicle (ignition switch) earlier this summer, around June. I called my dealer and they said they can not get the parts. I emailed recalls.mopar.com and they said the dealer should be able to get the parts. I called back to the dealer and they said go to another dealer which I would have to find one myself. Basically they did not want to know about it. Keller Dodge in lititz, pa is my dealer. Yesterday the ignition switch which had been giving me trouble failed altogether leaving my vehicle inoperable and not at home. Note: I could not enter a date in the space above - 08/20/2015

Grand Caravan

We had taken the vehicle to the Chrysler dealership in bloomfield hills, mi 3 days prior to our trip. We had it all checked out, they charged us around 400 for flushes and such, the rest was great and ready according to the dealer. 2 days into our trip, we got a check engine light. We went to the dealership in atlanta, left it for 2 days, and rented a vehicle. They said no issues found. We started for Florida only to find the check engine light would always be on after then. When driving back, in Kentucky going about 70 miles an hour in the mountains, the gauges all went to 0 and the entire dash went black. This was very scary and I assume unsafe. I maintained my lane and speed, as I was assuming there was no power steering or power brakes for the ten seconds it took for the power to somehow come back. We have lost power on this vehicle multiple times, and Chrysler/Dodge dealerships have attributed it to the key fob. We have had several replacements. This is unacceptable to loose power on a vehicle when driving and multiple dealerships to misdiagnose the problem. Please help.!! :(
