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.

On 2/11/14 took vehicle into the Chrysler dealership because of the starter motor not working properly and it had turned off while I was driving on several occasions. They had to replace the starter motor and I had to pay for it. After this the air bag light went on and I would think this is a safety issue and I should not had to pay for any of this. But I did. They told me they had to replace a short in the harness part #5143387aa. Also, the said the driver seat belt was causing air bag light to go on. This was a defect. I believe that if these are recalls and safety issues from Chrysler and I had to pay for them I would think that Chrysler should reimburse me for taking care of these problems before something bad really happened. I am always maintaining my vehicle and I am very glad that I have taken care of these problems. I would appreciate a email back and hopefully a refund for paying for something that should have been a recall. I have all of my records and receipts if you need copies. Thank you

Multiple occurrences of the ignition being turned off while driving. I have learned not to hang anything from the key while driving because it is too easy for a knee to bump the key and turn off the car. It has happened to me four times at freeway speeds. It should be fixed before someone gets hurt or worse.
