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.

Contacted cutter Dodge immediately after receiving a recall notice on my vehicle. I was told that the part was back ordered. While waiting for the replacement part to come in I received a recall notice for another defect. I went to the dealership to schedule an appointment and was told that they had the first recall part but the second recall part needed to be ordered. I have not received a call from the dealership since Dec 2015.

I have been getting Chrysler recall letters for 9 months now. (recall# P57 NHTSA 14V 567). Every month when I call dealership, atlantic Chrysler-Jeep, 6820 tilton rd, pleasantville, NJ 08232 phone:(609) 646-8600, they tell me they do not have the part and do not know when the part will be available. There are 200 cars on recall before my turn. I am worried about the safety of the airbag and ignition sticking between start and run positions.
