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.

Own a Dodge Journey SXT AWD 2013. Received recall notification R61/NHTSA recall 15V-675 on December 27, 2015 regarding possible anti-lock brake system (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems failure. I had an accident with this vehicle on July 28, 2015 (rear-ended another vehicle, tried to avoid collision, but vehicle did not react as expected) causing a total damage to this vehicle of app. $ 5,000. I have 33 years of driving experience and never had an accident until that day. I could not explain to the investigating police department nor to my insurance company why this accident happened. I tried to contact the fca (Dodge) customer service/recall center, but did not receive a response yet.

I was driving down the highway going about 48 miles per hour with my baby in the car and I tried to slow the vehicle down for a yellow light my breaks would not stop it took a hard stomp to come to a complete stop. Also my car will not shift gears it jerks when done and takes off very slowly hardly picking up speed. It also makes a knocking sound and vibration when you drive and after you turn the ignition off
