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.

Grand Cherokee

  • 85,000 miles
My car was recalled in September 2014 by recall # P41/NHTSA 14V-438 to replace the ignition switch. Since then I have checked with safercar.gov and my dealer repeatedly and am informed that no remedy is available. On 10-20-15 I got another recall for the same reason. Again, on safercar.gov it says no remedy available. I want fca to fix my car. The ignition switch has failed off and on since mid 2014 when the car had about 85,000 miles. It still fails at least a couple of times a month. The recall notice said to drive the car only with the ignition key in the switch. I have removed all other keys and the switch still fails. When the switch fails the car keeps running but all interior electrical stuff stops and all the warning lights go on. This is very distracting and I have nearly lost control due to being startled and by trying to restore the car to proper operation. What's taking it so long for fca to recall my car and fix the problem?
