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 recieved a recall notice from fca telling me that my air bags and seat belts might not work in a crash and there is a recall but they don't have remedy available and they will contact me when they figure out how to fix it. I have small childeren and if I get into a car crash I hope that my seat belts and air bags would work and for Dodge to tell me not to worry even thou they might not work is unacceptable.

We were traveling at 40 mph when I noticed my husband had not fastened his seatbelt in the passengers seat. There were no reminder buzzers on the dash nor was there a icon on the dash of the car. We contacted our service department at the dealership where we purchased the vehicle and questioned them about it, they in turn contacted Chrysler and was informed that there is none of the above mentioned in this car! how is it that this car has no warning alarms for this front seat.
