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.

Chrysler sent us a safety recall notice in September 2014 but after contact both a dealer and Chrysler directly they claim that they do not have the part available to repair the defect. It has been over a year and the vehicle engine has died while my husband was driving it at least four times; the last time he was on the highway going 70 miles per hour. This vehicle is a threat to our life safety. I would like it repaired or replaced at no cost to us. I do not want to trade it in and purchase a new vehicle which Chrysler has been trying to get us to do for the past two years. Thank you for any help in this matter. Updated 11/02/15.

Vehicle failed to start. All lights, gauges, etc. Were operational. Failed to engage starter. Towed to repair facility. Vehicle was diagnosed with a faulty power control module. Repair shop reported that due to numerous issues with the module across the county, the replacement part is currently not available and may take up to a week or longer before the part is available. Apparently, this is a common fault in these vehicles and renders our vehicle inoperable for an unacceptable length of time.

While driving the car would just shut off at random losing brakes, steering and engine power as well as other comfort features. It has happened on at least 6 occasions, usually you could just shift to neutral while driving and restart the car fixing the issues. Today however it happened will switching lanes to the center turn lane. Upon applying the brakes to wait to turn left the pedal went to the floor, then on the second depress it was super stiff and very little braking force applied. This caused the Jeep to rear end the 2 other cars waiting to turn left. The airbags didn't deploy either.

I am writing to express my concern regarding an engine problem with my 2007 Jeep Commander, that causes the engine to stall, and all power to shut down and the engine to completely shut off. While at first this problem was simply an inconvenience, I soon learned how dangerous this problem actually is. I was on a highway and I went to pass another car, mid-pass my engine stalled and I lost all power with another car coming at me head-on. Thankfully the other car was able to stop and we avoided a head-on collision at highway speed, but the outcome could have been very different. The stalling has been an ongoing issue with my Jeep now for at least two years, with no resolution to the problem in sight. I have followed all suggestions like not having a key chain and only using he key in my ignition with no change in the frequency of the stalling. It seems a bit ridiculous that there has been no solution to this very dangerous problem. A case was opened by Chrysler in January regarding my 2007 Jeep Commander stalling without warning. The stalling continues to be a very dangerous and unpredictable problem for me. In my last communication I was assured that my Jeep would be fixed when the part became available, I have heard nothing since January. Not only am I concerned about the safety of myself and others when I drive my car, I am also concerned about the additional stress this flaw in manufacturing is putting on the engine of my car. It's extremely fortunate that no one has been seriously injured due to the stalling problem to date, but I fear it is just a matter of time until someone's car stalls at the wrong moment and they are unable to avoid tragedy. I'm hoping someone can help we get resolution to this dangerous issue as Chrysler has done nothing so far.
