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.

2001 Chrysler 300M Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 012004

300M 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,000 miles


10 inch crack in dashboard above the passenger's side airbag. It also has started to crack the wood grain, pretty soon it will be from windshield to glove box. A 2001 car that' has been garaged and well taken care off, and they were saying it was sun damaged. After doing my own investigation on the internet, I found out that there were a lot of people who also had the same problem, and everyone was helpless as to what to do! I am worried that the airbag may not deploy properly in an accident. Why won''t daimler/chrsyler do something. Was it because they could not afford it.

Cracked dashboard pad above passenger side airbag. Seems like safety issue if it can affect airbag deployment.
