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.

After filling gas tank with fuel, after 30ish seconds the engine will stall and sometimes recover, sometimes quit. This happens regardless of whether I am stopped at a light/sign or driving. I have read numerous reports of others having this same issue. Seems that the charcoal canister is filling with gas. Please help make this a known issue for other drivers! this has happened over the last 3 or 4 months with my vehicle.

After refueling vehicle to full tank capacity, the vehicle stalls and steering wheel locks in an intersection within a few blocks from the gas station. For 2 years, this vehicle has been stalling after every gas refueling. It has now started to lock the steering wheel concurrent with the stalling. My wife, who was driving the vehicle at the time of the 8/18/15 incident felt she was in danger as cars tried to avoid the vehicle as well as almost hitting another vehicle because of the locked steering wheel.

The car stalled out since the first day I bought it (Jan. 1, 2008). It is now August 2014 and I still have this problem, except now it's a much more dangerous and bigger problem. If I go slow or stop to turn in the middle of an intersection, it stalls out. I almost got hit/killed today. The terrible part about it is that I've been complaining about this from day 1. every time I take it to the dealership, they can never find the problem. I just tried calling Chrysler and they are telling me I've only taken it in once for this issue, which is not true at all.. even if it was just once, they still didn't know what was causing the problem so they "could not fix it."
