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 T-boned a drunk driver who ran a red light with my 2006 Dodge Durango. I hit hard enough to brake the frame of the vehicle in two places and I hit the dash, but my airbags did not go off. Chrysler said since the airbag light was not on there were no faults in the system. If they did not go off in this accident what would it take for the air bags to go off? updated 03/01/10 updated 03/22/10

On July 3, 2006 I purchased a 2006 Dodge Durango. Not long after the purchase the air bag light started coming on shutting down the air bag system. On July 20, 2006 kari Dodge in kalispell, mt worked on the air bag occupant area. Not long after the air bag shut down again. Although not mentioned on repair log they again tried to repair the air bags, on August 2, 2006. Again they shut down. On September 21, 2007 I again took the car to jack of diamonds in longview, tx as I have moved to Texas since purchasing the car. They again attempted to fix the air bags to no avail. So I took it back to jack of diamonds where they again attempted to fix the air bags on October 16, 2006. To date I still have airbags that are shutting down whenever they want. I have contacted daimler Chrysler with this problem in an attempt to return the car as a lemon with a safety defect. They are researching my situation. I am not sure if anyone else is having this problem but just this last week I had to take my 63 yr old mother to a funeral in Mississippi and guess what they air bags shut down again. This is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately as I do not feel that I can trust this car to protect me in an accident. I also do not feel that I should be inconvenienced with this vehicle any more.
