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.

Back on 1/14/2015 I brought my 2006 Dodge Dakota to a dealership for replacement of rusted brake lines. About two months later, at 45K mi., my driver side seat belt indicator light started to flicker on start-up. Shortly thereafter it would remain lit after start-up. I waited to request re-servicing my vehicle, only to find out the air bags were on recall. Therefore, I waited until I was given the call to bring my vehicle in for air bag replacement. The date for servicing was 10/30/2015. Upon completion of the ai bag replacement I was told my new air bags would not deploy nor does the horn work. This would require an additional $600. The cause of this safety failure was due to a defective clockspring unit. My question is at under 50kmi. Is it normal for this safety component to fail and is this a constant in other vehicles? it seems to me that placing faulty safety related equipment in vehicles only increases profit margins, over and above the normal maintenance expenses.

My driver and passenger airbags are on the recall list. The only service company to replace the airbags/inflators on the island of maui is jim falk chrylser Dodge Jeep Ram, at 221 puunene ave, kahului, hi 96732 on maui (808 280-1774). It took over a year and a lot of complaining until the manager, aaron serrao, saw to it that my driver airbags were fixed last year. Now with the passenger airbags/inflators on the recall list, I don't want to have to wait another year until the parts arrive. Is there anyway you can have the repair parts sent to jim falk auto for my repair" when I talk to them, they tell me they have no idea when the parts will come in and that I should just continue to call every few months. This is exactly what they told me in 2014 when I was trying to get my driver side airbag corrected. Now I need the passenger side corrected. This is a safety hazard and I don't not want to further jeopardize my family's safety. Also, I had side airbags installed prior to purchase, will these need repair, too"
