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.

Wife was driving car, was approaching a left turn off the highway into a side street and the engine turned off. She tried starting the car again with the car in park, with the key fob, and it did start again. Prior to this, when starting the car in the garage, several times it would start and turn off immediately. I thought it hadn't gotten enough gas to keep going so I just started it again. It might have been the ignition switch snapping out of the start position at that time as well.

While driving the ignition switch turned off and resulted in a loss of power steering and brakes. Vehicle was in heavy traffic and almost caused a multiple car pileup. This has been happening for months. Dodge charged me $89 to diagnose and the result was the dealer told me to get an oil change and my radiator cap might be leaking. I contacted Dodge corporate escalating to a manager with no results. My wife and kids could have been killed. I was forced to trade to vehicle which costs me lots of money loss. Dodge did not care and either did the dealer. There are no other keys on the key ring to interfere.
