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.

The vehicle lost all power due to the ignition failure while driving down the road. This has happen multiple times. Chrysler has acknowledged a problem with the ignition switch design and sent out recall (P41/NHTSA 14V-438) in Oct of 2014. They have not developed the part yet to fix this recall. The dealerships don't want to touch it until the part is available. The car will sometimes crank and sometimes will not due to the faulty switch. I have contacted and filed a complaint with Chrysler and get the impression they are dragging their feet on this recall. They claim to be developing the part, but that has been 9 months. When the vehicle shuts off going down the road all power is lost including power to the airbags.

The car stops when it wants rather if I'm in traffic, stop sign, red light, or interstate.. the wheel and the brakes will lock up. I've been calling Chrysler the 1800 number and local dealerships such as picayune ms and slidell la about the situation but nobody seems to care!!! they said the parts isn't in and that its the ignition switch so I payed out of my pockets for the ignition switch and got it put on with the money that I didn't have to spare but obviously that wasn't the problem.. now my car engine is making raggling and tractor noises. Barely want to start.. basically I don't have transportation to or from work and school for the fall!!!!!!!!! thanks a lot Chrysler...

  • 10,000 miles
Since I purchased my Jeep Commander I have experience total electrical failure while driving on many occasions. This happens approximately every 6 months. While driving in speeds varying from 20 - 70 miles an hour my car will lose power. Prior to losing power all dash lights, tachometers, hazards, warning lights and performance indicators will flash repeatedly, very quickly. Within moments of the flashing lights my gas will shut off, my brake system completely fails and my steering will completely lock up. I have absolutely no way of controlling my vehicle in any manner. Several times my vehicle has stopped in major traffic. Numerous times other vehicles have had to make drastic maneuvers to avoid crashing into my car. I have almost been rear ended and was nearly T-boned when my car died as I attempted to make a left hand turn. In the event that I am hit, my airbags have no power and will not deploy. My windows and locks have no power. My children and I could be trapped in my car. I have taken my car to the Jeep dealership that I purchased it at and they refuse to fix it and will not provide a replacement vehicle that is not a death trap. I have called the Chrysler recall assistance center and was told no parts are available and have no indication as to when or if there ever will be. I cannot sell my car because no one will buy it knowing it has such major safety issues. This is the only vehicle I own. I have 3 children that drive in this car everyday. One of my children has cancer and I need a safe reliable car to take him for chemotherapy treatments. Chrysler is not accepting any responsibility even though I was mailed a recall notice. Please help!!!!!
