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 received two recalls on the above vehicle. The first says the engine beauty cover may come loose and come in contact with catalytic converter resulting in a fire. The second has to do with a ground wire on the right front shock of the anti-lock brake module. The wire allows water to wick through into the ABS module which can disable the ABS and/or the electronic stability control. The lack of functioning ABS and/or ESC systems could change the braking and/or handling characteristics of the vehicle and cause a crash without warning.

Helfman Dodge katy freeway houston 713-533-6100 say parts for safety recall "on back order, ,,may take a few weeks or months" before they have the parts. ABS notice R61/NHTSA 15V-675. So we are left with a potentially serious problem with dealer unable or unwilling to repair.

Purchased at monroeville Dodge pittsburgh pa. My brake calipers had become discolored and I became concerned. I asked the service representative to inspect my brakes and brake calipers. I was informed there was nothing wrong. I did take pictures of the brake calipers on all four wheels and found the discoloration through out the car. I find this unacceptable for a new car and forwarded my complaint to Dodge.com. I have yet to receive a recall or notice that my complaint was registered. At thirteen months I had to have my front rotors resurfaced for a fee $125. The service manager stated I just missed the one year on brakes on I had to pay. My brake calipers are still discolored now.

The ABS light illuminated when it started raining. The driver sustained cuts and bruises that did not require medical attention. A police report was filed. The air bags did not deploy. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence and was later deemed destroyed by the insurance company.

Antilock brake system module recall. I called mid valley Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership in grandview w.a. to schedule an appointment for my recall and there was a date set for January 20th,2016. Took my car in and they told me that they didn't have the parts and would have to order them. Was told I was going to get a call as soon as the parts came in. A month and a half passed and I still hadn't received a call so I went ahead and called them and I was told that they didn't have the parts and that they would call me. Its been 3 months and I have still to receive a call from them. I am extremely concerned for my family's safety and would like this matter to be fixed as soon as possible.

Ed voyles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has failed to remedy the recall of the anti-lock brake system control module for my 2014 Dodge Journey in a reasonable amount of time. After I was initially notified of the recall, I called to schedule a service to address the problem. I was told at this time that the parts required were not in stock and to check back in a few days. Upon calling a second time, I was told that I would be notified when the parts became available. After a month of waiting and no notification, I called for a third time and was told parts were still not in stock and that I would now be placed on a waiting list. Ed voyles failed to offer a timeline for resolution nor simply tell me my place on the wait list, stating that it was not numbered.
