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 frequency button ignition key in my vehicle is still not fixed a year after I was made aware of the problem. I was told that Chrysler has not provided the necessary parts to fix the problem yet. The vehicle was purchased in the hudson valley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealer in newburgh, NY 12550 I find this situation unsafe and unfair on the part of the Chrysler company. My husband stephen babits (deceased) fulfilled his financial responsibilities with Chrysler. Now Chrysler needs to do the same.

Recall P57/NHTSA 13V-567, I have contacted the dealer and Chrysler and they are saying the parts are not available. We have this car and 3 others with the same recall. These are police cars and we need them taken care of asap. Also in the notice it said to contact your dealer and I did several times and they say parts are not available yet. Chrysler gave me a number 88I if that helps when I contacted them.
