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.

Dodge dealership in watsonville ca told me never to bring my car to be fixed by them again, mostly because I have a lifetime warranty and purchased an additional small parts lifetime warranty and every time I take it in to be fixed, it comes out with the same problem. But I digress.. I do not beleive they will call me at all for the recall airbag driver's side repair. It has been at least a year and a half, since the recall was issued.

My family and I were involved in an accident and the airbags did not deploy, not one and it was the front end of car that was impacted on us hwy 19 in the rain. We did sustain injuries and are still working on our recovery, but had the airbags went off we may have been saved from some of the damage to our bodies. I just wanted to let you all know and I have already passed the info along to my lawyer, I just hope something is done so that when airbags are needed people receive them deployed on time unlike ours that never even thought about coming out.

I towed to hollywood Chrysler Jeep for car repair. They said they would fix take care of everything. 3/5/16 received a phone call from them at about 2:00 and was told that they had fixed the car and only had to replace the wire harness. I arrived at there between 3:30-4:00 on 03/05/2016. I paid they then gave me a business card for L.a. towing told me I would probably need a tow soon. The steering wheel was upside down when I received the car back. I started the car it made a grinding sound and kept cutting off while I was driving from starter left loose.asked why they didn't fix it just have it towed back when it breaks down again.on 03/ 07 the car broke down again completely. From the time I received it from hollywood Chrysler Jeep the car kept cutting off at almost every ten minutes. On 3/7/16 it wouldn't crank anymore so I had to leave the car there. It got towed about 4-5 days later by ems towing. It is still there. The customer service supervisor he stated that they were not obligated to fix the car only to get it running and that's it. He said that they were not obligated to put the steering wheel on correctly even though they performed the recall. I then asked him to show me proof of the wire harness replacement and he stated that they repaired not replaced the wire harness. I then asked about the estimate to show exactly what was the issues because their description of the problem on the estimate page was only a reiteration on my observation. He stated they didn't have to tell me what was wrong, only get the car started that's all. He stated that they were not under any obligation to fix what was wrong, though the only reason I towed to them was to have it repaired. Asked why did his mechanics leave the starter loose because that was the main issue that I brought the car there for. He said you don't expect for us to fix the whole car do you.
