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.

While traveling on us 33 West bound in marysville Ohio, just in front of exit Honda parkway around 6 am, traffic came to a stop, as I was slowing down, estimating around 50 mph (70 speed limit), the car behind me crashed into the the rear of my car, after collision I responded by trying to steer my car to left, but hit the car in front of me. All three cars involved in the crash were totaled. The rear impact shattered the rear window and significant damage occurred to the rear of my car and also the front from the forward collision. The vehicle's airbags did not deploy, I hit my head on the steering wheel, and suffered from a diagnosed concussion as well as a severe strain to my neck. One year ago, I had taken my vehicle to a Dodge dealer to get the airbag replaced due to a recall. Considering this, I reached out to Dodge and they assigned a case number to the incident. It has now been four weeks, since I have contracted them, and Dodge is yet to respond to my issue. I have called several times each week, following up on the case but has not contacted me our provided me with any information. Dodge has claimed to have attempted to reach out to me, but cited an issue with having wrong number, even as I have confirmed / verified my contact information every time I have contacted them.

Has anyone else had issues with their brakes seeming to lock up and airbag light in dash coming on after R25 recall repair"??? dealer refuses to address these problems without me paying for diagnositics to be run first & I don't have $100+ to pay out of pocket. These issues started the day I drove it home after getting the recall repaired...... help?!?!! I paid for new brakes bc I figured it could be strictly coincidence, but the light & beeping too?!" no way!!!!
