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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Have been told by 2 Jeep dealerships that reason for my Jeep shutting down while driving is in the electrical with the key switch. There is a recall on this but Jeep doesn't have the parts to fix. There are more non safety issues caused by this problem such as the nav screen & back up camera not working as well as radio/gps. My Jeep just shut off on I-40 & I-75 at a high rate of speed on 2 different times for a period of 2 yrs. Of course, there is no warning. The first time this happened I about got ran over my a tractor trailer. This is my work vehicle and I show properties with it daily. I am widowed and am on a budget. I have called & emailed (Chrysler customer # kmm 9079662V48259L0km) for help several times. I do not want to lose my life or somebody else's life because Chrysler will not manufacture a part until people are dead! I appreciate any help with this problem.

Grand Cherokee

  • 100,000 miles
Chrysler has a recall for my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee for the ignition switch P57/NHTSA 14V-567. The part is not available to repair my vehicle and they do not have an estimated or actual date this part will be in. Chrysler refuses to accommodate the customers with a loaner vehicle. Why is Chrysler not accountable for my car troubles after the recall (which I never received a recall notice)? the government fined Chrysler 70 million dollars and will fine additional monies if the vehicles are not repaired. Why am I suffering and not being accommodated with a working vehicle when the billion dollar industry (Chrysler) has a mishap? my experience: - when vehicle ignition is turned off it only goes the way, the key fob sticks and will not exit. This causes the radio clock light and the gear shift panel to stay lit, which in turn drains the battery. (had to purchase a jump start kit $70 + tax) for when the battery is dead. -since, the key will not exit the ignition I must leave my work area at least twice a day (sometimes more) to check, if the key fob will come out. Once it took 11 hours before key would exit, after running the engine for over 3 hours. I am in jeopardy of losing my livelihood if this issue continues for much longer. It has been going on for months. The recall started November, 2014. How long will I suffer, because I don't have money to purchase a different vehicle and why does this always affect the most unfortunate individuals like me. -there is a 90% chance that my vehicle will be stolen (since key is left in the ignition). I work in durham, nc on the week-end; I pray that I will be able to get back to raleigh if this happens. I cry most nights in fear of losing my jobs. Please, help me!!!!!!
