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 was made aware of safety recall S61/ NHTSA 16V-668 via mail on Monday the 21st and have made multiple calls and emails to the Fiat Chrysler automotive company. As of right now there is no firm eta for the repair as parts are not available or in existence yet. They think January but are not sure. I do not consider 45days a "reasonable time" to wait for a safety fix for a vehicle. They have offered to reimburse me for a rental but I am not in a position where I can put out $1,200 per month and await to be paid back for the next several months.

There is currently a recall regarding the airbag not deploying in case of a crash. I was in a head on accident in 2014 and I had wondered why my airbag didn't deploy. Is there a monetary compensation for companies whos airbags don't work due to a proven technical problem?

The contact owned a 2011 Dodge Caliber. While driving 10 mph and making a left turn, another vehicle crashed into the passenger door of the contact's vehicle. The air bags failed to deploy. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the vehicle was destroyed. The contact sustained a broken neck and a broken back. Medical attention was required. A police report was not filed. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 42,000.
