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 have had a recent problem where I just thought that the air bag light was on. I later learned that not only is the air bag light on but the air bag will not deploy if N accident occurs. In addition the horn and cruise control does not work. By searching on the web I have learned from the dealer that this is a common problem in their vehicles. It will cost me over 250 dollars to correct. How can Dodge know that this problem exists and does not tell anyone or have a recall. This is deplorable. I am sure that deaths have occurred because of this and Dodge knows this too. Please let me know what can be done. Thank you. Vince filliben 610-361-8921.

At least a year ago, my airbag light came on and has stayed on. Approximately the same time, I began having problems with my criuse control. In addition, my horn has quit functioning. I contacted a dealership, and they stated it sounded like the airbag clockspring had gone bad. The part alone was estimated to cost $250. I recently checked the NHTSA site, as see that my van is not the only one with these same problems.
