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 ordered the recalled part from the dealership on 20 July. I returned a call on 03 Aug. And was told that only a few parts were being sent to the dealerships per month. It is now 17 Aug and I have been on your hotline for an hour and a half. I live in a high humidity area, and I am very concerned that there is no regard to the safety issues of this vehicle. Perhaps the media would like the information for another story on how the manufacturers are failing the public.

Received safety recall for airbag- called dealership and was told Chrysler did not send parts. Dealership explained that they would contact me when parts arrived. One month has passed and no contact received from Chrysler or dealership. Should I be riding around in Florida humidity without repairing these airbags" what good is a recall if it is never repaired"

Air bag light stays on even though there has never been an accident. I don't think it will deploy correctly. It is truly a safety concern.

We were driving on the freeway and we slowed down for traffic. We were going about 25 miles an hour when we got hit from behind. The car was going 40 to 50 miles an hour. The whole dash - stereo and etc came apart but neither the driver or passenger airbag deployed?? I just bought the car from a dealership in September 2013 so everything should have been in working order.

This issue started approx 3 weeks ago. The head lights will not stay on they flicker off and on as if I was flashing my lights to alert another driver, when they are actually doing this on its on. This is not only a safety issue, but I'm afraid I will get pulled over by law officials. And my job requires me to have to be at work at night. This is very disturbing when this happens and they stay off at times for 30 to 40 seconds at a time and I'm having to hold the bright light arm to have lights. The passenger airbag light comes on from time to time saying it is not on, and there are brake issues as well.
