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.

I get routine maintenance on my vehicle and it is in excellent condition. I was heading off to work and it would not start whatsoever. No clicking, no noise; nothing happened. I took it to a dealership where it was there for a week, and I was told it was due to the ignition recall from Chrysler. I have been going back and forth with Chrysler as to when I can get info on the part. I get no response from them. I have wasted so much time and vacation days to get this taken care of. I get nothing. I have to pay upfront for my rental car which Chrysler tells me I can then apply for a reimbursement that takes 60 days to get back if approved. I am making payments on a dead car that has no solution to it. In the meantime, the dealership is telling me that it is not their problem and I have to deal with Chrysler directly. I am stuck and out of options I just don't know what to do. It is very frustrating and Chrysler doesn't even care about the fact that I fully trusted them in the first place by making this purchase for my family's main transportation. Please if there is anything I can do to further discuss my situation to get a better response from Chrysler please let me know. I will never buy another chryler Jeep vehicle in my lifetime.

Important safety recall letter received back November 2014. Chrysler admits to a serious problem with ignition switch with the fobik and they admit in their recall letter that as result of the particular fobik failure could "increase the risk of crash under certain driving conditions." Also, the letter states "fobik" spring back may also cause the disabling of one or more of the vehicle's safety features including the frontal airbags. This could increase the risk of vehicle occupant injury during a crash." My complaint is there is still no part available for this problem and it has been over 6 months. I am very concerned and wondering what I can do" what would you do" love and compassion and gratitude.

I have had my Jeep gc lockup. This happened 8 times since late Oct. 2012. The conditions are as follows. The engine stops, I have no control, no brakes or steering. 2 times I was driving one of the two I ran into a post. This put a big dent and scratch on my car. The first time this happened I was in a parking lot. In order for me to get the car stated I had to force the key to move. I called Chrysler 3 times. They put me on the rush list. This was over a year or 2 ago. They won¿¿ even talk to me anymore. Once I was doing 70 mph on the expressway. The engine just stopped and I had no control other than braking, but there was no braking assist. I got a recall letter from Chrysler about 2 years ago. And still noting ¿¦ what is going on?
