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.

Received safety recall notice stating ABS and/or ESC could malfunction and cause a crash with out warning. Dealer/ fca is doing nothing to ensure safety. Parts are unavailable, and it is unknown when parts will be available. Letter states they are concerned about your safety yet they have done nothing to correct issue. I am still to drive my car or I must rent a car at my own expense.

Journey

  • 2,108 miles
While driving home my 2015 Dodge Journey (which only had 2,108 miles on it) died while decelerating to turn into my neighborhood. Praise god, no one was behind me and I had to crank the wheel to pull over to the side of the road as the power steering and brakes also died. There were no warning signs, indicators, lights, etc. I put the car in park and hit the start button and it started right up. I immediately called the dealership and told them I would be bringing it to them in the morning. They have now had my car for 5 days and can't find any error codes in their computer when running diagnostics and "can't reproduce the stall". they are keeping it for a few more days to "put more miles on it to see if they can reproduce it" and also have a call into their corporate engineers and are waiting to hear back from them. I told the service manager at the dealership that this was a known issue with the T.I.P.M. (total integrated program module) on older models and in fact 2 were reported at www.carcomplaints.com/Dodge/Journey/2014/ for 2014 models. He claimed that this defect is on older models 'only' and wasn't the problem. Although they are making some updates to the car's computer system without knowing if this will fix it, he said if they can't diagnose or reproduce the issue, they will return it to me and basically just hope it doesn't happen again. One website that reported this exact issue on older model Dodge (various makes/models) is: www.chryslerproblems.com/problems/200-engine-dies-while-driving.shtml. the report shows my exact situation! engine dies when decelerating, no warning indicators, once key is turned to off, it restarts, diagnostics at the dealership showed no computer codes indicating failure. I'm terrified that it will happen again only perhaps in a much more dangerous setting.
