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.

My rear quarter vent windows were on a recall and I took it to the Dodge dealership (May 2014) where they disconnected the automatic switch to the windows. It has now been non-operational since then. I have contacted Dodge corporate offices and the dealership on a routine basis to be constantly told they have no idea when this will be repaired. This is beyond a reasonable time to fix something like this. Please help me as I would like to have my windows operational. Dodge simply does not seem to care and have no interest or priority in repairing this defect. Thanks

Recall P25 for rear vent window switch has been out for six months. I contacted the dealer and there is still no replacement part. I contacted the Chrysler recall number for "more information"...they had none. Six months is an unreasonable amount of time. Why is there no replacement part" when will there be a replacement part" these are simple questions that the dealer and the manufacturer cannot or will not answer. I would think that given six months there would be some effort to fix my car or at least explain why the delay and give an estimate of time when they intend to fix it. Six months is unreasonable.

Recall #P25/NHTSA 14V-234 why is it taking so long to get this replacement done? I got the first notice in May 2014 and have not heard a thing since. I have called the dealer several times and even stopped by, also no other information in the mail. I realize that the dealer can disconnect the switch so that the windows do not function but, as I told the dealer, I travel with my dogs and sometimes have to leave them in their crates in the van overnight at motels (don't allow the in the rooms) and the few that do allow dogs in rooms, charge an additional fee. Fact is-- I need to have proper ventilation for them. I purchased this particular vehicle because of the ventilation the windows provide. This is a real inconvenience, especially for this length of time.
