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.

No "accident" has happened as yet. The air bags outfitted in this car are manufactured by tanaka and they are defective. In all climates, the bags have exploded are injured or killed a person in the car. Chrysler is only dealing with select climates for an action they are taking. I have reported it to Chrysler and they will take no action at this time. Hopefully, the government will take action and I will be willing to join class action law suits. At present, if I am to drive this car, I would be endangering myself and/or others.
