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 the recall notice R03/NHTSA 14V-373 over a year ago. I immediately contacted the dealership in ithaca, NY, as my vehicle had had this problem (engine shut off while driving) many times. I was told that they would order the parts and get back to me and that is might be a "few months". over a year later not a word. My husband contacted a different dealership in auburn, NY several months ago and was told the same thing. Still have not heard a word. I have 3 children that regularly ride in this vehicle and having the vehicle shut off when you are driving 55 mph on the highway and you lose your power steering is a little unnerving to say the least. Seems like the recall is a farce and no one is actually getting the repair.

I was sent a notice of "important safety recall" by Fiat Chrysler automobiles regarding my vehicle's wireless ignition node module; ref: R03/NHTSA 14V-373. This was issued in October, 2014; I received the notice some months later. Despite several calls to my local Dodge Chrysler dealer, I have been unable to have this safety hazard repaired. Every call to rairdon's Chrysler Jeep Dodge of bellingham, wa has resulted in the same answer: "we don't have the parts and have no idea when we will get them." As directed by the recall notice in the case that my dealer "fails or is unable to remedy this defect...within a reasonable time, " I am contacting you for assistance. Fiat Chrysler automobiles notified me in a timely manner about this hazard, but the local dealer appears not to be concerned about it. I thank you in advance for any assistance that you may be able to provide. Please note that my vehicle has so far not appeared to suffer the unintended engine shut off described in the recall.
