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.

I contacted Dodge about the recall and they have no solution a but to sit and wait for airbags to come in. However, in the interrem my wife won't get in the truck. They will not offer any help or resolution. What am I to do" we contacted fca and they offer no solution. Do we have to wait until we reck and someone is killed before the government will force them to supply us with a safe vehicle? is there something else that we can do"
