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.

The drain for the ac leaks under the passenger side dash. A recall (K25) was issued because the leaking water can affect the air bag control. Chrysler will not cover this vehicle claiming the VIN # is not included. The problem and safety concerns are the same and the recall should be extended to cover all affected vehicles.

I tried to avoid hitting a deer and when swerving I went off the road and hit a telephone pole at 55 miles an hour. My airbags didn't deploy and I am now out of work with herniated discs in my neck. I have 4 young children that don't understand that daddy cannot play with them! I will now forever be worried if I'm going to move wrong and be paralyzed! I'm scared and shouldn't be! this vehicles safety systems should have operated properly!

2009 Dodge Caravan modified by the braun corporation to include a manual ramp for wheelchair passengers was traveling on a 2 lane icy bridge and was unable to stop for a 1997 Chevy truck that had already slid out on the bridge and was left sitting across both lanes. The Dodge Caravan hit the vehicle head on with such force that the driver had the parts from an artificial hip come out. When looking at the vehicle the airbags didn't deploy but the front end is seriously damaged and the vehicle is a total loss...updated 04/26/12. Updated 06/27/12 car fax report received.
