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.

My daughters and I were pulling away from a stop sign and I just pressed on the gas when the back bench seat that has the stow and go seating unlatched from the floor and flung her backwards. Though she didn't get to hurt. I was scared to death. Is this a problem that has happened before? I am nervous to let them sit in that seat but the bench and both bucket seats have this locking mechanism.

At any unknown time, the door locks will not lock, or unlock by way of using the key fob buttons. The button however does activate the horn, which would make you think the doors are locked, in reality they are not. This does not constitute a safe and secured vehicle. This problem has been brought to the service dept.'s of several dealerships with the answers being lightning in the sky, static from the seats, unknown electrical interference from somewhere(maybe space!. one service dept.'s charged $ $36.72 to fix code. The next time though there was no charge"? why the first time when it's still under warranty @ 26,000 miles..this problem still exists. Why??? former complaints from Dodge P.U. owner had similar situation and had to have his veh. Towed. This is unacceptable, another reason cited from dealers service dept was sliding across the seat could cause the problem, how do you do this when it has bucket seats?????"

: the contact stated while getting onto an on ramp, the vehicle was hit from behind. The driver's seat collapsed. The dealership was not notified yet, but the contact planned to notify them soon. There were no problems with the seat prior to the incident. A police report was taken.
