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.

I purchased my vehicle in November 2015, just two weeks ago while stopped at a light my vehicle just turned off. When trying to restart my vehicle jolted then turned on, I took to the dealership they stated all it needed was a software update and it would fix it and that it would never happen again. While 4 days later it happened again this time the vehicle was in motion we were turning a corner and bam the car turns off again almost getting slammed by another vehicle. I had to help my.husband pull the wheel to turn, the steering wheel locked braked didn't work or accelerator. I opened a case with Chrysler and they say they can't do anything for me. I really need help.with this some please help this is a unsafe vehicle

I am experiencing intermittent issues with the illumination of tne interior lighting to include the 4.3-inch touch screen display, the ts display has at times not illumintated for up to a full minute. Also at times the interior lighting will dim for no reason, no external lighting has changed to cause this to happen. Uconnect often will have issues with connecting to phone. The illumination issues occur either after the vehicle has just been started or it has occured while driving. We are also expereincing issues with the brake being difficult to press down on when attempting to start the vehicle, either with the remote start or without. We recently have taken in the vehicle to have it inspected and they did not see any issues. The dealer did not even think about updating any software which might resolve this issue, as I am seeing online here: www-ODI.NHTSA.dot.gov/owners/searchresults.action?searchtype=prod&prodtype=V&targetcategory=a&activetab=3&searchcriteria.model_yr=2015&searchcriteria.make=Dodge&searchcriteria.model=Journey&searchcriteria.prod_ids=1978691

This is the third time in 3 months... the check engine light turns on, goes off, then the fuel cap light comes on. The first time we were told it was a sensor and there was a minor vapor leak detected so Dodge replaced the sensor. The second time it happened, there was a major vapor leak detected so they replaced the gas cap. This is the third time and are waiting to see what is causing it now. Also, yet another issue occurred in which the air bag light came on and the air conditioning fan would not blow, supposedly that situation resolved itself although this was witnessed by the service department at the dealership because they could not recreate it. Finally, we purchased a 4 cylinder and live in a climate that gets up over 115 degrees. When accelerating, the A/C blows warm. The service department has stated that this is a known issue with the 4 cylinder Dodge Journeys.

When I attempted to start the vehicle by placing my foot on the break and pressing the start engine button, the car initially began to start but then shut off (it was on a half tank of gas). I released the break, and then made a second attempt; pressing the break and pressing the start engine button. This time the engine repeated the initial vehicle start sound (as if it were coughing), until I hit the start engine button to turn cancel the process or turn the engine off. The vehicle started successfully on third attempt. When I got home, I noticed that the vehicle's engine icon was on - not blinking, just on. I turned off my engine, and then turned it back on and the engine icon lit up again. This morning when I was discussing it with my husband he let me know that a few days ago the Journey hood was popped. I don't even know where the hood popper is, and none of my personal belongings got snagged on anything so I don't believe I am the one who popped it.
