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.

Everytime I refuel my vehicle, the engine stalls at least twice until the fuel needle is below the fuel mark. I don't overfill my vehicle, so I wonder why is this happening!

My Patriot with 108K miles stalled at 75 mph on the highway 3X last night on a 3 hour drive. It also stalled 4X times today on my 10 min way to drop it off at the dealership. Once while idling and 3X while driving at different speeds. Once while I was turning. I've read online that this has been happening quite a bit to 2011 Jeep Patriots and even caused a car to be totalled. Please investigate this.

While driving the vehicle just dies for no reason. After a while it starts back up with the exception of one time I had to have it towed to a mechanic. A couple days ago it stalled while on the fwy with my 3 yr old son almost resulting in disaster. I bought this vehicle about 6 months.

While driving to work on 12/03/13 I was at an intersections attempting to accelerate and turn in to traffic on a busy highway when my car would not accelerate, almost got hit. Car continued to hesitate as I pressed the gas pedal down. Car slowly accelerated but would not go more than 40 mphs. Car continued to pull and hesitated as I was attempting to get it the shop. Major safety concern and almost get in a major accident attempting to turn into traffic.
