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.

This vehicle has an outstanding recall issue L25 wireless ignition code. We purchased the vehicle in April 2014 at which time we have experience a handful of complete shut down of the vehicle while traveling up to 35 mph. Daily the ignition must be turned 4-5 times before starting or will start and immediately shut down. We have removed all extra keys and key chains as stated by Chrysler. Calling Chrysler has been unsuccessful as they have a recording claiming the recall parts are not available at this time and wait times for over 15 mins will not still allow you to talk to someone in person. Therefore the local dealership is unable to repair. Is GM offering a free loaner until this vehicle is declared safe? I have a payment and do no longer wish to drive this vehicle. I have also tried to sell it for over a month with no luck. We are honest people and would inform buyer of outstanding recall unlike the dealer in which we purchased from. We have contacted our auto lender do start paper work on a voluntary repossession, however this will impact our credit greatly and we will also be responsible for the defaulted difference between the auction price and our loan.

We had problems with the car not wanting to start after being turned off and turning itself off while driving the van. The dash area where the stereo, clock, dvd player and etc. Turns its self off. The rear doors do not power operate. The air bag lite is on all the time.the rear window wash button washes the front window. We had this vehicle in the shop a lot they could not find the problem. We bought this van because we have small grandchildren ride with us all the time but with all the problems I would not buy or recommend this vehicle to anyone.

We have not had an issue yet. However our airbag warning light is constantly coming on and we have had it checked 3-4 times and have been told that there is nothing wrong with the van. We also have a safety recall that has been in effect since 2014 and have been told that the parts are not available and in fact they are not even being manufactured yet. We would like to know why Chrysler is not taking this seriously. We could get into an accident and our air bags and restraint system could fail. What can we do?
