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.

When turning off the Jeep the key won't release for sometimes 10 min up to not at all and I must disconnect the battery. This has been happening 9 months, when it first happened I took it to the Jeep dealer they charged me about $200 for a diagnostic test that told us nothing, so I paid to have them tell me they had no idea what was wrong but offered to sell me parts that they thought might help but no guarantee. I called Chrysler to see if anyone else had this problem or if there was a recall, they said no. About October I got the recall in the mail saying when the had the parts they would contact me. Today after being stranded for the third time with a dead battery I called Chrysler to see if parts are in to do the repair, they said no had no idea of when they will be. This is my only transportation and I have medical issues that have put me I the hospital 3 times, I need reliable transportation. Chrysler rep said the will not supply a rental or replacement vehicle while they figure this out. What am I to do.

I received a recall letter back in the summer 2014 for faulty ignition switch. Called dealer, parts not available. Called several more times since, still no parts and told to wait for letter. Well, it is now Feb. 2015 and still no parts/letter. It states that ignition switch can turn from start to run, which will shut down engine or other electrical parts ( steering, engine, power brakes ) increasing the risk of crash. Do I have to wait till I crash before this is taken care of ?
