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.

Takata recall: It took over 2 years for my local (only dealer within 100 miles) to repair passenger side airbag recall (repaired 8/19/16). The driver airbag remains defective. I was told by dealer 8/19/16 they had no idea of how long it would take, that they could not put me on a waiting list, that I would have to wait for a follow up recall notice. In the interim I drive this deadly vehicle every day. The recall has been in effect far too long to not have the parts available. I suspect because I have an older vehicle, just like old people who need medical care under obama care, we are being put on the bottom of the list, hoping we either die or our cars are crashed, sold or otherwise disposed of by scrapping the older vehicles. This is ridiculous.

On Saturday, January 23, 2016 we were leaving our home at approximately 6 pm. As we pulled out of the driveway, the airbag light on the dash came on. On our way home later that night and while traveling at between 55 and 65 mph while getting on to I-43 near green bay, wi. Both driver side and passenger side curtain airbags suddenly deployed despite there being no impact of any kind. As designed, the vehicle then shutdown completely, making steering extremely difficult. With considerable difficulty, I was able to maneuver to the side of the rode and come to a stop. Further inspection revealed no exterior damage to the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the closest Chrysler dealer, who then read the codes with their computer. The codes indicated that the vehicle had sensed a "rollover". obviously, no "rollover" had occurred. Chrysler would not repair or replace the airbags or airbag module because they said the vehicle was out of warranty. Chrysler also specifically stated that they were not responsible for repairs or replacement of the airbags because no recall had been issued for the specific airbags that had gone off or for the module. Insurance would not cover cost of airbag replacement or airbag module replacement as it was deemed an "electronic malfunction".

Received recall on driver airbag inflator, the parts are not available, is it safe to drive and risk a potential deployment of defective airbags that can result in death or serious health risk. The intention to repair by manufacturer is good faith but what is safety without the correction of the defective airbags..is there an alternative, perhaps a loaner car from the dealership until the parts can be replaced.
