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 air bag light has been coming on every two weeks since I purchased the vehicle on September 15, 2015. I have an open case with Dodge however the problem is still occurring as of today. They service department is stating the hitch is the issue however the hitch has been replaced 6 times. I am unsure if this is an recall issue or not however I am extremely concerned that I will not survive an accident or the air bag will deploy in a minor situation causing severe damage or death. The air bag light is on when the car is stationary as well as in motion.
