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.

2016 Dodge Journey Owner Comments

This vehicle was sold to me by central Florida Chrysler Jeep Dodge, 8675 commodity circle, orlando, fl 32819 with an open recall. I purchased and drove this vehicle home on 8/20/2016. This car was a new vehicle and should not have been sold with an existing recall. When I called to explain the car had a recall, they were very rude and told me the recall was new and the part to correct it did not exist at that time.

The contact owns a 2016 Dodge Journey. While approaching a stop light, the steering column locked without warning. In addition, the accelerator pedal was applied and failed to accelerate. The contact had to turn the vehicle off to reset the computer. The dealer test drove the vehicle, but could not duplicate the failure. The dealer cleared a code concerning the power train control module and provided no repair solution. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 6,000.
