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.

1st time: Lost all power while in motion at slow rate of speed after my knee slightly bumped the key ring hanging under the ignition (knee did not touch actual car key). 2nd time: Lost all power while traveling at 80mph (speed limit in Utah) on interstate 15 in passing lane after knee slightly grazed the lower part of the key chains (knee did not touch actual key). Was able to restart engine quickly in both cases and was lucky enough to be on straight section of roadway at the time.

While driving my 2007 Jeep Commander, it will shut off. Other times the lights will flicker off and car seems to stall. This problem happens without any warning. It is very scary to be driving on the interstate and the car just stops!!! I have four children that I drive around, so this can not happen! I have read where there have been many complaints about this and nothing has been done. That is unacceptable because lives are at risk. I'm taking the vehicle in for the ignition switch recall, but I have read where that has not fixed the issue I am having.

I completed a recall (14V-438 recall date: September 3, 2014 manufacturer recall number: P41) understanding that my problem would end. The ignition key recall work: When I insert the key to the ignition, it takes an effort to push and turn the ignition key. 1) I am afraid the key will break off after several attempts. 2) I have not experienced the light flickering and electric panel shutdown (engine still running, but panel seems to be disconnected from engine performance at this point) 3) my vehicle continues to accelerated on its own with foot on brakes only when stopped at a light or stopped and making turns, or stopped on "P- park" with engine idling joltin my head/body (to describe how much it is felt).
