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.

Vehicle stalled without warning. It has stalled 5 times while driving with no warning at different speeds and after different driving times. This time I had only driven 5 mins and about 300 yrds when it stalled. It has not started 2 times prior when leaving work. After 10mins the vehicle started and I drove it another 515 miles to dealership. Waiting to see what they do after the 5th time at the dealership. This thing is going to kill me one day. It has already stalled on the interstate at 60mph. It is only a matter of time.

Jeep has been stalling for 7 months. Been in shop 9 times. Jeep stalls going at different spends, while stopped, moving at idle in forward or reverse. Jeep will not start unless terminal on battery removed or sits for awhile. Transmission fails to engage occasionally in reverse or drive after stalling. Last program download appears to be a fault with the tipm (totally intergrated power module). Ptm and tpm changed out due to different readings in downloads. Mechanic believes now, that the tipm is faulty. Jeep has stalled up to 5 & 6 times on some days.

Got vehicle back from dealership after 5 different stallings and 3 times it did not start this is 3rd time at dealership. No code came up, tech drove 20 mins and they had no problem, said come pick up your vehicle. Got vehicle back on Thursday, drove Friday 240 miles with one stop in the middle with no issues. Drove back home 240 miles 2 days later, 3 hours and 45 mins into 4 hour drive, it stalled out with no warning. On single lane secluded road outside miami. Krome ave- no passing 2 lane road. Car stalled out with no warning. Was able to drift to side of road, waited 5 mins and it started back up. After it had stalled out and was on side of the road, it showed the lightning bolt in the venturi symbol. I escaped death and injury again. I have decided to get an insurance death policy on me. I think my luck is going to be running out after this being the 6th time stalling and 3rd time not starting. What do I do now"????" I have put a lot of money in this Jeep, with bumpers a lift kit.... I have no idea what to do. Chrysler is not helping. They have had other Chrysler vehicles including Jeep Cherokee that were recalled with this same problem but yet they cant fix my vehicle. I guess there were more rich people driving the other vehicles.

About a month ago I was in the middle of a 4 hour drive I do on a weekly basis and 2 hours into the drive my vehicle stalled as I was slowing for a yellow light. There was no warning at all and it took me a second to realize it had stalled. I was able to roll out of the traffic lane onto a side road. The police showed up and helped me push it off to the side of the road. At that point I tried to start it, approximately 10mins after stalling and it started right up. I went straight to autozone and had a new battery installed, $250 and got going on my way home - fat, dumb and happy - until 2 days later when it did it again. The second time it stalled I was on a busy 12 lane interstate 95 in downtown miami. Again I did not know it had stalled, I was increasing speed from about 50mph to 60mph and pushed the gas pedal and nothing happened. I was in the middle of 6 lanes and immediately put my hazards on and rolled through traffic onto the side of the interstate. I waited 5 mins and it started right up and I went straight to the Chrysler dealer in kendall, fl. They gave me a rental vehicle - thank god. About 3 weeks later they changed out the PCM and gave it back to me - fixed (supposedly). 2 weeks later it stalled in traffic on a 4 lane hwy; waited 5 mins and it started fine, was later at the store got in the vehicle and it would not start just kept trying to crank itself, waited 5 mins later and it started. That weekend took it to Chrysler in tampa (jerry ulm) they said it is not in my warranty and I paid $400 for what I was told was a Chrysler "work around". 2 days later it would not start and it tried to crank itself. I turned the key off and waited 5 mins and it started right up and I went directly to kendal Chrysler, where it is sitting today as I write this.

Gas flowing out of tank opening, not shutting off when filling tank up. Has happened several times since having to fill vehicle up 3 times a week. Have tried several gas stations, and the same thing has happened at all stations. It seems the cutoff valve, O ring or something inside the gas opening is not working

My vehicle, 2013 Jeep Wrangler unlimited vent on fire, while I was driving on the highway, in russian federation. I observed the fire, coming from right side of engine compartment. I stopped, pulled out fire extinguisher, but all my attempts to put down fire failed. Entire vehicle burnt down completely in 7-10 minutes. Independent expertise, determine that cause of fire was leakage of transmission fluid on catalytic converter, on the right side of engine compartment. Also, I'd like to mention, that vehicle were purchase from official Jeep dealer in sankt petersburg, russian federation. Complaint were made to zao Chrysler rus I can submit police and emt reports, from the place of accident.

As I begin to pull into heavy traffic, I hear and see the check engine light warning along with the skid control light illuminating. The car then stalls leaving me sitting in 70 mph traffic. The vehicle starts back up but has a noticeable loss of power. This loss of power continued until I got home. When I finally get home I use a code reader which indicated it was a camshaft position sensor. Code P0344. This could have been a much worse incident as there were no mechanical issues leading up to this.

Following the recall number N28/NHTSA 13V-234 and P61/NHTSA 14V-631 I took my car to potamkin's planet Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealer in miami Florida 33172 on March 13, 2015. They left the car there for one day and they gave me the receipt stating "transmission oil cooler tube - replace power steering tube, inspect transmission oil cooler tube, install protective sleeve and bleed power steering system" and also "heated power side view mirror wire harness - repair install new mirror connectors and water shields." I inspected the car myself after pickup and I noticed none of the repairs were done. I went back to the dealer on March 21, 2015 and I spoke with the service department manager, [xxx]. the car was inspected again and, in fact, no work had been done. They then installed the sleeve in the transmission oil cooler tube and he told me it was the only work needed. So the previous information on March 13, 2015 was fraudulent.

When I go to the gas station to fuel up, I engage the pump lock lever so the pump will fill up and shut off automatically when my gas tank is full. Unfortunately, the fuel pump disengages too late, and an unbelievably excessive amount of fuel will spurt out, cascading down the side of my vehicle. 2 different dealerships have attempted to resolve the issue, yet the problem persists. I have filled up at gas stations across no less than 10 different states - from the West coast to the northeast; with a variety of fuel pump styles; amid various temperatures; yet the only variation is the velocity with which the fuel sprays from the pump.

Appx. Nine months ago I received a recall for the transmission oil cooler tube(N28 / NHTSA 13V-234) I went to don avee dealer in placentia, ca. They put me on a waiting list. I checked with them three or four months ago and they tell me that Jeep will not send out enough parts to repair the problem. I`ve been told when Jeep sends the dealer the part they will contact who ever is next on the waiting list.

Was informed in September of a recall on the transmission oil cooler tube coming in contact with the power steering fluid return tube. Causing a loss of fluid, loss of transmission function increasing the risk of a crash. Every time I call they say they have no parts to fix the problem. It has been months and they keep saying the same thing. Safety recall N28/NHTSA 13V-234.

I was rear ended as I was slowing down for another accident in front of me, when my Jeep got rear ended the motor speeded up as I was pushing down on the brake pedal. I could feel the ABS working.only after I hit the gear shift out of gear did my Jeep stop. My engine continue to run at a very high RPM. Only after I shut everything off and restarted need the engine run normal.
