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.

I have been trying to get the air bag recall resolved on my car. I checked in September and again October 16 and told that they do not have replacement parts. When I go on the Chrysler web site for recall information, it says that parts are available. I feel that Chrysler, or the dealer, are not giving me top priority. In the mean time, I am at risk. I checked this out again today with the same result.

My son was driving to college on the interstate and both the driver and passenger front air bags deployed. He did not have an accident, hit an animal or hit a pothole. There was no damage to the vehicle other than the airbags deploying. My son was not injured, he was still able to see the road and pulled over to the shoulder and called me to inform me what happened and ask what to do. As he was close to his college I told him to be careful but continue on to school, I would call his uncle who is a mechanic and then let him know what to do after his class was over. I called the insurance company and my brother. My brother said to have him drive it to his shop so he could look at it. The insurance company started a claim. The insurance company has investigated and does not believe it will be covered as there was not a collision of any kind and the airbags deploying for no reason is not covered under my comprehensive insurance. My brother ran a diagnostic and these are the codes that came up: Active - "driver squib" and "passenger squib", stored - "orc accelerometer", "driver squib #1 circuit open", "passenger squib #1 circuit open" and "driver squib #1 short to ground". there was obviously a malfunction somewhere within the airbag system. Any assistance with this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The vinyl on the passenger side of the dash in my 2001 Chrysler 300M has cracked. The crack is about four inches long, and based on information from other 300M owners, is in the vicinity of the passenger-side air bag. There is concern that repair of this crack is unsafe due to its proximity to the air bag, and that the crack may affect deployment of the air bag.
