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.

My vehicle was driving fine, then all of the sudden I lost all lights, all ignition, A/C everything except the engine. I lost speedometer airbags. The car acted like it was shut off but the engine was still going. My ignition has had problems since August 2014 and I have been calling my dealer every week to find out about parts. The parts have taken longer than a reasonable time to become available. My car now lights up (every check engine, traction control, seatbelt, oil, airbag, every light on the dash) at least 3 times in a half hour period. Was told by the dealer it was due to a faulty ignition. My car will not pass California smog with the check engine light coming on multiple times in my trip anywhere. I was told September 11th they would have the parts available. Then it was moved to October 11th. Chrysler needs to Focus more on their customers safety and reliability of their vehicle. It should not take over a year to replace ignition.

I have been waiting and waiting to get this problem rendered. I received a recall notice about the faulty ignition switch and the slew of possible fatal consequences should anything occur. The recall notice is P41/NHTSA 14V-438, and ive been told I would receive a second recall notice in September 2015. Well, im still waiting!!. meanwhile I am driving a potentially dangerous vehicle and have been for quite awhile. I have no choice. I have already noticed my check engine light stays lit on my dash, as well as my airbag light as well indicating that I already have issues occurring that are according to the recall notice is linked to this problem. I want this fixed. I cant afford to buy another vehicle and need the one I have. However, am I suppossed to get seriously injured or killed first" then what, ? a family member receives a check? who cares about the money if I'm killed" I am seriously annoyed and concerned, please render this issue. And I'm sick of hearing "we dont have the part". I need this vehicle fixed now!!! its been too long already.

In rush hour traffic, the car would lose power everytime the car came to a stop or idled. 3 days later, the car lost power in speed limit traffic after going over the railroad tracks. Since then, it loses power at every stop. If I am not aware, the car rolls into oncoming traffic! I took the car to my nearest dealer. They confirmed that it was the ignition switch that has been recalled and a part hasn't been sent to dealers. I called Chrysler and all they did was put me on a list! they apologized for me not having a car to drive and that was it! they would not provide me with a timeline of when the part would be ready. They refused to provide me with a loaner vehicle while it was off the road. I have lost my mode of transportation unless I want to risk my and my family's life, and they say there is nothing they can do even though they are at fault!

At approximate June 2014 I received a recall notice for the ignition switch. Chrysler said approx. Delivery of September 2014. I have not heard or received anything since then. My concern other than the unsafe ignition switch situation is that every time I use my Jeep, my airbag warning light flashes on and off continuously. As time goes on, the worse it gets. My dealer says he has checked others vehicles with the same problem; his best guess is it's related to the ignition switch. He also said the airbag should be a concern because it may activate at any time...even without an accident! Chrysler told me not to be concerned...how can I not be concerned" what else can I do"

While driving my vehicle it just shut down without any warning and I had to guide it to the side of the road to restart it.thankfully I was driving in a neighborhood where I could do this, it did this a couple of times in one outing, now its every so often. So far it has not done it while I'm out on an interstate but I try to stay close to home til it can be fixed. Plus when I have on my lights my dashboard lights blink on and off. Then here recently the air bag light started flashing and a few days ago it stayed on and hasn't shut off. I've talked to the Jeep dealership about this and they said that they don't have the parts to fix the recall item P41/ NHTSA 14V-438 and I'm liable for the airbag issue. From what I have read online all of these issues are connected. I received a letter on the recall a few months back but have not heard anything back on when I can get it fixed at the dealership. Please advise on what steps I should take to get the parts for this recall so I can enjoy driving my vehicle again. Thanks again
