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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I was at the drive in movie and had the truck running for part of the movie. I shut the truck off and just listened to the rest of the movie via my radio and had the lights off. When the movie was over I I could not crank my truck. You could see the lights on in the inside but my truck dash said my key was not in vehicle of which it was. Then it said vehicle not in park of which it was. My uconnect screen kept trying to load and would just keep going out. I had 3 people try to jump it just in case the battery was dead even though I knew it wasn't including the tow service for my insurance. None of this worked. I had to get the vehicle towed home now I can not lock my vehicle cause it has no power. My dash says my key is not in the vehicle of which it was and that the vehicle is not in park of which it was. Now on my dash it says the following lights are on: Etl electronic throttle light, air bag warning light, and mil malfunction indicator light. I saw a lot of complaints about this on google and youtube when I search this issue this has got to be fixed caused I am a doge fan but I can not keep a vehicle that I am paying on and it doesn't work.

The 2013 Dodge Journey's VIN number is: 3C4pdcab9dt2241. The national highway traffic safety admistration has stated to me that the recall for the engines's cover recall has passed the 60 day grace period. To ensure satisfactory recall performance and rectification I would like for this vehicle to be brought back because of the recall and a horrendous smell that started in 2014 and continues today. The smell so terrible contributed to coughing, allergies, sneezing and itching from myself and other passengers. The smell as since been diagnosed again and August of 2015. I have not picked up this vehicle from darcars of new carrollton because of the recall and the smell that has yet been fixed. This vehicle has been in and out of the shop at least 17 times, including 4 times for brakes, 4 or more times for a scheeching sound and 3 to 4 times for the smell that has cost molding/mildow. I have contacted the following organizations along with the case number. 1. Dodge case management- case#: 27627943, Office Of Defects Investigation:case#: 10775926, mopar vehicle protection plan: Case #: 38205462 and Mr. Brian E. frosh office, Maryland attorney general's office - case #: MU258042. Henceforth, I have spoken to management at the dealership as well as Dodge case management abut my total disability. I have since been placed on total disability in which my orthopedic doctor as stated my stress level and the wear and tear on my knees can not take on any more driving. I have had 4 orthoscopic knee surgeries, sprain ankle and carpal tunnel that make my pain level each day unbearable. It is now that I say to you that I would like for this vehicle to be brought back because of the defects and the recalls that has yet been fixed. The 60 day law applies to this vehicle. I look forward to a speedy approval as to buying back this vehicle. I have documentation to support this claim.
