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.

I have made contact with a local Chrysler deal about both recalls on my 300 with no results. I'm told they will contact me when parts are available, but they never call. I will not be held responsible for any cost if these recall issues do damage to my own vehichle or pasender in my vehicle. I have tried numeriour times to get these issues rectified and have been unable to make headway with the dealership.
