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.

I am trying to file a complaint to get the recall repairs to my vehicle completed. I received the recall (13V252) on December 11, 2013. I have called the nearest Jeep dealer to me which is 30 miles away. The dealer is flower motors in montrose, Colorado and I have called them more than once during the past year and a half and they have still failed to call me back to schedule this repair. I am at my wits end and hopefully, you can do something to provide relief. I look forward to hearing from you soonest. Thank you.

Regarding recall N46/NHTSA 13V-252: I responded to a Jeep dealership (St. Clair, mi) to have the recall related repair made. I was told by dealership staff the repair could not be completed as the vehicle's frame was "too corroded." Though my vehicle was covered in the recall, the dealership did not complete the repair. Instead, they asked I sign a form acknowledging the frame was too corroded. I refused to sign that form. I took my vehicle to a local repair shop, who advised they found no such corrosion.

When getting gas, the overflow did not register and a bunch of gas spilled out everywhere. About a week ago, my check engine light came on and the error code listed the evap leak which includes gas fumes leaking out. The error code also says it could be an issue with the gas tank neck not functioning properly. This proves the gas tank neck is not functioning properly. This gas overspill every where is a nasty safety hazard! a warranty extension was released on certain Wrangler models for this same issue. Chrysler needs to fix this problem asap!

Turned left out of the doctors office, drove approximately 50 yards and attempted to stop at the stop sign (making a right). The vehicle's engine, however, began accelerating and despite applying extreme pressure to the brake, continued to move forward while the engine accelerated faster. I ultimately ended up throwing it into park and then turning off the ignition to kill the accelerating engine. I have no idea what the RPM was, but it was loud! this also happened 2 weeks ago (first time - very cold morning) and I ended up throwing it into park and turning off the key like today. Todays temperature was around 40 degrees. Fyi - I was in the process of making a right hand turn when this happened and had slightly turned the wheel. After the first incident, I began doubting that this had even happened. In hindsight, despite several blogs on the internet, I am absolutely positive that I did not push down on both the accelerator and brake at the same time. After todays incident, I immediately called our local car dealership to schedule an appointment and then attempted to recreate what happened. Under various scenarios I bumped the steering wheel cruise control buttons (while stopped, while stopping, while accelerating) but could not cause the runaway acceleration to repeat itself. We have an appointment at our local dealership this Friday, or as soon as we can drop it off. Candidly, I'm scared to drive this vehicle at this point!

Recall notice: N46/NHTSA 13V-252. I received my first recall notice close to a year ago. I've called the dealer numerous times to schedule my Jeep for repair and have been told each time that Chrysler Corp has not released the work notes or the parts to them and are unable to make the repair. I have been told this story four times in the past year and I find it hard to believe that Chrysler Corp would send recall notices to me, and periodic letters telling me the importance of this recall repair to then not have the parts available. I believe that my dealer is not scheduling these repairs. The dealer is: Burdick Dodge Chrysler Jeep located at 5885 E. circle drive, cicero, NY 13039, (315) 699-3846. I really want my repair to be made but there isn't another local Jeep repair shop to go to.
