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 wife hit a tree head-on going approx. 30 mph. She suffered injuries to her face, neck, back, wrist and knee. Airbag did not deploy. Contacted Chrysler, they picked-up the car and performed diagnostic evaluation from the computer and sent a letter stating the airbag was not defective. I find it hard to believe that the airbag was not defective as the impact and damage to the vehicle is significant.

Vehicle was in a minor collision. Hit another car in rear at less than 15mph. Air bags deployed hitting driver. Very little front end damage. I do not believe that the air bags should have deployed, and I am concerned for our employees safety. This is the second time we have had an Intrepid deploy air bags at under 15mph.

I ran directly into an abandoned car that I did not see (it was dark outside). The impact to the other car was strong because my daughter's glasses flew off of her face. The impact was mainly on the right front side which if she did not have her seatbelt on, could have caused her to hit the windshield. We went to the emergency service at the hospital and I found out at that time that she had a pain in her neck for a very short period of time directly after the accident, but it left. I am concerned about why the airbags did not deploy.

Consumer contacted dealership to see if vehicle was included in recall 98V049000, and was informed that this vehicle was not included in recall due to VIN.
