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.

Vehicle started to accelerate on its own. It made it a foot or so before stopping. Soon after, the vehicle at random turned on the wipers and horn. Ignition became non-responsive and I had to pull battery cable to silence everything. Had to take it to the dealership for repair and received lecture about not pulling battery cable and was charged $90 so a tech could fix this. The tipm module had failed and needed to be replaced.

Recall L25/NHTSA 14V-373 "fobik" button ignition key may not fully seat in the on position and may move to the accessory position. Received the recall notice 9/15/14. Called Chrysler dealership they said they do not have the parts to fix this item. Told me to call the manufacture. I called Chrysler and got a recording saying that they know of the problem and are working to fix this. It is now 6/4/15 and still the manufacture and dealer do not have the fix. We use this vehicle for our business and are not sure what to do. We know there is a safety problem, but we are unable to fix this because the manufacture has not resolve this issue.
