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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Received a recall notice on my 2008 Chrysler 300, for an ignition key malfunction, ,P57/NHTSA 14V-567. I have been to my local dealer 3 times in the past 4 months and was told, each time, that the parts are not available. As my car has this problem, I am concerned. I am aware of the problem, but sometimes a friend will drive it, and although I tell them, they might not remember to move the key to the run position.
