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.

My 2008 Chrysler 300 had received two notices for recall,1 for the ignition switch and 1 for the airbag/ I called Chrysler corporate for an update for the ignition switch recall which I received about 10 months ago and I was told it was no estimated date when the part will become available and I will have to wait ;after multiple phone calls I asked for them to give me a rental car in order to drive in a safe car while they will keep my car and fix the ignition and the airbag issue but I was denied the rental car and was told I will have to deal with the issue, they will not rent a car for my family and they do not have any estimate when the ignition part will be available;even if I insisted about the safety of my family and the fact a recall for the airbag was in to, they did not care ;I went to the Chrysler dealership too and the response was the same, it looks they are on the same page;no rental car for me and as they insinuated to me if we got into a car accident " though luck"/ I am not sure what to do now ; I tried to contact Chrysler corporate multiple times, . the Chrysler dealership the same and still not have a solution to my problem;I am ignored by Chrysler by some issues in my car very dangerous and life threatening but nothing had been done and no estimate in perspective.I will need some help to have the issue resolved;my wife was driving the car even yesterday which stalled on the middle of the street again for no reason and it happens all the time ;as my wife says " she leave her life into god's hands "I do not think this is an acceptable and responsible behavior from a such big corporation and something should be done to help customers like me in distress. Thank you for listening.
