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.

The headrest on the passenger seat has a head restraint that activated while the car was parked, backed in, with no way of any car getting behind it, and not involved in any accident. According to the dealer there has been other instances of this occurring. Chrysler engineering is looking into this problem, have been for nearly a month now, and I was instructed it O.K. to drive with out restraints.

I was involved in an accident. My car had 21000 miles. Someone ran a light through an emergancy lane the front of our vehicles collided. No air bags deployed, my engine ended up on the ground as well as my radiator. It was a total loss. Shouldn't there have been airbags deployed?

Avenger 4-cyl

  • 17,100 miles
I was hit by another car that ran a stop sign and none of my airbags deployed. The accident resulted in a total loss due to the hard hit. As a result I do not feel safe at all knowing that I could be hit so hard that my 2014 Dodge Avenger was totaled but no air bags deployed to do the job they were suppose to do.
