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. The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Caliber. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V668000 (air bags, seat belts); however, the part to do the repair was unavailable. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. The contact had not experienced a failure. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

There is a recall on these parts on my automobile and there are no parts available to repair. I am worried and nervous about this possibly failing in my car due to all the past incidents with takata airbags. I would like to have this remedied if not sooner rather than later. This has increased my risk to danger and as a result I am no longer confident in the vehicle's performance. The manufacturer has not provided any timeline on when this issue will be resolved.

problem #1

Jan 162012

Caliber 4-cyl

  • 22,000 miles
I was traveling at approximately 40 mph when I lost consciousness due to adverse reaction to a prescribed medication. Approached retro-style pickup truck stopped at red light & because of being unconscious didn't apply brakes to slow down & stop. Frontal crash into rear end of stopped vehicle. Airbags didn't deploy nor did seatbelt engage to prevent me from being thrust forward face first into steering wheel. Incurred significant damage to front teeth & neck/back strain. Was informed by Chrysler Corp. That airbag sensors are positioned too low for deployment. Also informed because I did not apply brakes this was cause for both seat belt not engaging to prevent forward thrust into steering wheel and deployment if airbags. Also was told seat belt & airbag will not engage their safety features because I didn't apply brakes creating an inertia effect which would have activated both safety mechanisms. This is disturbing @ many levels as: 1 how can airbag sensors be positioned so low they won't deploy upon impact with vehicles higher from ground than mine" 2 when unconscious brakes cannot be applied therefore engaging what are supposed to be safety features to prevent injury or death" this whole incident is very unsettling as I no longer feel safe driving this vehicle. These above mentioned failures of safety features not engaging at relatively higher speed impact into rear end of stopped vehicle is not acceptable & should be thoroughly investigated.
