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.

05/02/2014 backed out of parking spot to pick up son from school. Vehicle stalled 3 times in parking lot before having to push it into a different parking space. Towed to dealership. Received call test codes for steering angle sensor not initialized. Dealership not able to show error/code to the warranty company, - warranty company would not ok work. This "code" has never been duplicated again. 5/28/2014 car stalled while driving 15 mph and would not restart. Tried to get codes but no power to the engine. Vehicle towed back to dealership on 5/29. 6/4/2014 received call from dealership to ok replacing battery due to it dying. 6/5/2014 called Chrysler & they opened a case. 6/11/2014 dealership called telling us that we needed to pick up vehicle and that they could not find any problems and would not spend any more time with it. 6/12/2014 husband spoke with Chrysler/Jeep and he was told that they were going to look further into the issue. 6/23/2014 husband received a call from Chrysler about getting more internal resources involved and we would hear back in a few days. 6/26/2014 received call from Chrysler/Jeep. They sent a Chrysler rep and tech to the dealership - they were able to start car 20-30 times with no issue, could not replicate any problems. Chrysler rep recommendation to dealership charge us storage fees if we did not pick up the vehicle by 6/30/2014 also told that they could not do anything for me since my vehicle was older and did not have a warranty through them. 6/27/2014 picked up vehicle. 7/04/2014 car died in middle of road, after about 15-20 minutes husband able to restart vehicle. 9/15/2014 the car has been parked ever since 7/4/2014 too afraid to drive it due to stalling issues and an unwilling to pay for another "diagnostic test" or tow to be told that they can not find the issue. Continue paying for a vehicle I can drive safely.
