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.

Ignition switch does not work property; once turned off- vehicle will not start for day(s) at a time; dealership manager stated to "use caution" because the vehicle could turn off while driving, and that there is no know fix to recall P57; contacted Chrysler for a loaner vehicle, multiple times, and expressed safety concerns especially during the winter month; Chrysler is not will to give a loner, and states that the vehicle can be driven, and that a vehicle ignition switch issue "turning off" is not a safety concern, and their policy is to not give loaners for recalls; attempted to get a time from Chrysler supervisor without any luck; the dealer has failed to remedy this defect without charge and within a reasonable time. I am unable to use my vehicle while still making payments.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

  • 130,000 miles
Stopped at roadside stand. Tried to restart, no dashboard lights, no ignition all windows down inoperable, towed to Jeep dealer. It is a faulty wireless ignition code. The receiver in the system that checks for the correct key fob.this has the potential to put the occupants in a dangerous situation. It seems this is a nationwide problem, because the part may be in re-engineering and won't be available for 1- 2 months! one aftermarket supplier told me there are 300 of these parts on back order. Sound like a recall to me.
