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.

The vehicle is unsafe due to the lack of power when climbing hills with anymore than 3 persons. It is a 7 person vehicle. It is also sluggish when 3 or more persons getting in and out of traffic situations. Example excellerating onto onramps. Took the vehicle to the mountains and the engine lite kept coming on saying oil extremely hot, you will loose power, and I did. I have haden it to sahara Dodge, took it for a drive to the same area with the service supervisor and he saw exactly what I was talking about. He never documented his findings and left the dealership 2 days later closing my star account. A new manager tony supposedly took it for a test drive, lied saying a Chrysler rep. W/ the star account went with them for the test drive, when in fact he never went. They sahara Dodge are now closing the account and refuse to address the safety issues any longer.

One of the biggest problem is the back doors not locking when in drive like they use to. My sons door didn't lock like normal (inside door child lock was locked too) but worse of all my car didn't even show that the door was open in the back and I didn't hear him fall out and it open and he fell out while driving, my check engine has been on and my outside temp on car dash reads 185 all the time, it loses power while driving, the radio also turns volume up and down and channels changes by itself. My wipes back and front sometimes go and don't turn off. My right fender is no longer on the car because when I got a flat aaa lifted the car from the under carriage and the fender just came off on one side like bolts weren't even place on there I bought this car for safety for myself and kids and this car is not safe and Dodge won't help and I'm very upside down on it, im a recently divorced mom waiting for disability for my back. I can't afford to trade it with more money down. I paid a down 6500 and pay 400. Per month and never thought I would have to worry that my kid would fall out while child lock was on and when the doors should lock, . now this new recall with the engine makes me worried to drive my three kids to school or anywhere for that matter.

Taking exit off us 12 onto I-82 (yakima) my vehicle suffered complete engine failure. The brakes did not work and had to rely on the emergency brake, stopping about 100 feet away and nose in traffic. My family to include my 39 weeks pregnant wife, sons (3 & 4), and myself were in the car. During my five emergency brake attempts I hit my head on the frame of the door. I feel that we are lucky to be alive as we had skid a few times before stopping with no further injuries. As of now, I have a splitting headache and my wife is being monitored for signs of fetal distress; all around [xxx] experience. The Dodge dealership that I purchased it from refused to lend me a loaner vehicle, said that it happens, and offered to look at it in two weeks; bs! information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

While making a left hand turn into a shopping mall, my car stalled. No steering, brakes, power, etc. The only thing that stopped my forward progress was a curb. Almost got hit from behind! I was able to go thru the start motions and restart my car. I had it towed to the dealership where I bought it. The stall was "not found on the computer check". they did find valve leaking & replaced booster check valve. I just got it back today (4/18/15), let's hope this never happens again. I drive on a highway and it if it happened there - who's knows what the outcome could have been.

I was slowing down and turning right into my driveway when the engine stalled. I was going 8 mph when I noticed I had no power steering and the rpms were at 0. my engine stalled for no reason. I have push button start/ignition, so this is not a case of a heavy keychain moving the ignition into auxiliary or off mode.. this is my wife's car and she drives my son and daughter everywhere. I am very worried this could happen in a dangerous situation or at higher speed! I'm not a mechanic, but I have noticed with the V6/auto 6 speed transmission, this car has very strange shifting programs / "curves". it seems to shift early and sometimes when slowing down, it's like the transmission doesn't downshift quickly enough. That may be the cause for what it's worth. Bottom line, I need to know it's not going to do this again with my family in the car!
