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 am the operations manager for a livery service on cape cod that uses Dodge and Chrysler minivans for public transportation service. I've been trying to get the parts for the ignition switch recall since June 2015, and my local dealer keeps telling me the parts are not available. Fca keeps sending me notices, and I find it disgusting that anyone should wait over nine months for the parts for this vital recall. Fca should be ashamed of themselves for not making these parts available in a timely manner.
