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.

We were hit by a car and the car did not deploy the air bags and it cut off and all the electrical shut down and the car ignition got stuck and had to be turned over several times before it would start. I was told the problem came from the ignition switch.

Ignition switch issue is still not resolved. I called Chrysler and they told me that there is no eta on when they are going to receive the parts to get my vehicle fixed. I have recently had issues with my car not starting at all in addition to the ignition switch sticking. I took it to the local shop and they fixed the ignition relay. After that, I received the ignition recall from Chrysler. Chrysler is refusing to reimburse me for the ignition relay as they indicated that, at this time, they cannot confirm that it is part of the recall (relay failed due to corrosion) as the representative was not sure what would need to be fixed in the recall "????" Chrysler has also refused to provide me anything in writing of their denial of reimbursement for the corroded ignition relay. The representative would only give me her first name, [xxx], and no other assistance. She assured me that they would notify me when the ignition switch comes in and Chrysler has a record of my call and claim. This is not very comforting knowing that I am driving with a safety recall and ongoing issues; no estimation on when the parts are going to be ready; let alone when it will be fixed. Bad part in my car and dealing with a company that will not even give the courtesy of providing some type of documentation! I am required to rely on them to have a record of my individual issue when they cannot even give me an approximate date on when the parts will even be available.
