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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: A prime example of why you should never buy the first model year of a new vehicle.

In October 2014 I received a letter stating Chrysler had a safety recall on the frequency operated button ignition key for my Journey. As of March 2, 2105 I have yet to receive a letter to get this fixed. I think 6 months is more than enough time to have this recall taken care of for my car. The letter said I had to wait for another letter stating the part was at the dealer. I have never gotten this letter. Could you please tell me what is taking so long and when this problem will be fixed?

When the car was started the windshield wipers came on and cannot be shut off or the speed changed. The headlights cannot be dimmed. The direction signals do not work. The fog lamps do not work. Sitting in the garage unattended the car locked itself. Without the key in the ignition 2 red lights on the dash are now blinking. I purchased the car from al West Chrysler in rolla, mo on 2/11/2015 but was not able to pick the car up until the next day due to an undisclosed electrical problem. I asked [xxx] in the al West service department to report the issue to Chrysler Corp. But he said it would do no good that I would have to report it myself and gave me an incorrect phone number to call. I am currently looking for a correct number for the Chrysler safety dept. I feel this is a safety issue that ought to be corrected at Chrysler's expense.

I was driving down the road, (the road has a slope) my car hit a bump in the road and shut completely off. I kept pressing the brake but it didn't stop the car from rolling down hill because there was no power to the car. My car rolled into the back of another car. This vehicle is part of a recall and I have made several trips to a dealer to get it repaired but I am told each time that the part is not available. I am afraid to drive this car. This time it was an accident the next time it shuts off it may be a fatality.
