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.

Takata recall - while exiting a highway into a shopping center, my car completely shut off. My wife was unable to steer the vehicle. Fortunately we were able to restart the vehicle before an accident occurred. This episode was very frightening. Very unsafe. I don't know what caused this, but this desperately needs recalling. Thank you for your concern in this matter.

Ive had issues that I am reporting to thus site. Dealership said my VIN didn't match. My esp, ABS, and bas lights have been on for 2 years. I went to dealership to inquire on ECU flash with new software by recall, but the dealership said only police package vehicles were included in that recall. Ive researched countless hours to find very many people who have this same problem. Now I am needing to bring my car in for the airbag recall. From what it states on this website, my recall was ordered back in may, 2015. From the information that I read, there was supposed to be a 60 day time span within which the dealership was supposed to fix my airbag issue, and the fact that my vehicle VIN number falls under this recall order, I believe that I was previously misled by Chrysler Dodge Jeep about the issues pertaining to my ABS, bas, and esp issues which regard a wheel speed sensor, from my understanding, that causes me to lose traction, trouble braking in moist to wet weather, and my cruise control option has not worked since the ABS, bas, and esp lights first came on 2 years ago, when my wheels lost traction while pulling into a gravel driveway at about 5 miles an hour.I drove off road accidentally twice in the passed year: The first time was caused by a lack of ABS and a braking assistance system which caused only minor damage to front bumper. The second time was due to loss of tire traction while pulling away from a stop sign while it was raining, causing me to spin out into a 180 degrees turn to which my tires caught traction and I acceled through a white picket fence on the corner of the street while my foot firmly jammed on the brake pedal to try and prevent personal or external damage. Still damaging passenger fender and front grille. I'm close to request of a depreciated financial reimbursement on vehiclal. My safety, security, and trust has become compromised.

While driving to work the instrument panel gauges and warning lights began to go haywire. The gauges dropped to 0 and the warning lights and bells began to flicker and ring. The fan/heater began fluctuating up and down as well. Early on, this would occur intermittently. Now it is more consistent. It is occurring daily-- more so in the early morning hours. It is quite scary because you have no idea what will happen next. I acquired a video of this event. It can be found at: www.youtube.com/watch?V=qdz-uczi2de.

My vehicles engine light was on while I was taking it to get inspected. Aaa ran a test to find out as to why the engine light was on. The diagnostics should a problem with the plenum, air intake valve and the car needed a reflash or update in the cars computer. I took the vehicle down to a Dodge dealership and found out that the plenum is a common fail part and is a dealer only part and cost $969 to replace. After having the reflash done on my vehicle and finding out about the plenum I returned to aaa to find out if they could fix the problem cheaper. They then checked the recall list to see if their were any recalls. The recalls for my vehicle were for the cars computer system, the interlock mechanism for the clutch, and the radiator fan. After finding out about the reflash being on recall I called the dealership in an attempt to get my money back and was told recalls are VIN specific, even though distributed by regular mechanics. After fixing the engine light problem and getting my car inspected, 3 days later the interlock mechanism broke and would not allow me to move the clutch to put car in gear. I took it to the dealership again and paid for a diagnostics and was told the problems I am having are all listed in the recalls but they can not fix due to recalls being VIN specific. I paid $478 for interlock to be fixed. I have two more items on my vehicle listed for recall and I now keep getting a lightning bolt warning sign on my dash when my vehicle is idle. I have paid for 2 out of 4 recalls that should have been taken care of by the dealership but were nt due to them being VIN specific even though everything matches up what's wrong with my vehicle and what is being recalled.

The car did not stop proceeded forward hitting the car in front which was a fender bender, however total loss of a purchased brand new Dodge Charger which had gone to the service center every week after purchasing for a reset of the computer system jumping skipping stopping, however un - final answers it was always communicated the car was fine and good to go. As a result of the accident the ruling was not against me as a driver, however, an attorney who specialized in manufactured defects was a communication after several attorneys listened to the case but did not take on the representation. Also as a result now 3 years later, $35,000 back surgery, continued medical bills, perm disable permit due to inability to function normally before accident excruciating pain day in and out. No help no car personal insurance paid everything / gap when the attorney took case could not find the totaled car"....there has to be something that can be done about that. One attorney stated the company is responsible, however stated it is a case that would be major. Is one's debt and personal liability as a citizen not important enough to receive help towards this matter? I am afraid I will live in and suffer with this pain in debt til death! this is a case that falls in the gray area in the land of O well--- why shouldn't the dealership be responsible? why did the judge throw it out of court, to be against me? why cant I receive medical and loss of time an wages from an immediate emergency surgery? please help me I emailed the attorney general's office and was informed to connect with this line of communication. Please help...!!!! I have to work or I will be homeless now what"
