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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: This is a classic example of why you should avoid the first model year of a new car. Sure, it's new and shiny but there's going to be some growing pains.

The 2005 Magnum has problems with the gear shifter getting stuck, a shaky and sometimes stalled engine and transmission failure at 75,000 miles.

Let someone else deal with those headaches.

Takata recall, when taking our car to the dealership here in anchorage Alaska. 9600 old seward hwy.. lithia auto stores # 106... it was our belief that the airbag light problem was fixed but, to much surprise they said that the recall had no effect on repairing the airbag light? shouldn't the recall fix this problem and why would the dealership say that the replacement of the dr. Airbag didn't fix the airbag light.. if the safety of people operating this type of vehicle could possible harm or even kill occupants riding in these cars affected by a national recall... my main concern is that my children ride in this car daily and it would upset me and my family if we were in an accident that could possible harm or even kill my kids, because the vehicle wasn't fixed right to begin with.

Takata recall hi, I received a notice in the mail last year stating the driver airbag inflator may rupture and that my vehicle would be repaired free of charge once the parts are available. It's been months and I have not received any follow up recall notice from fca (Fiat Chrysler automobiles). Since there is a potential for serious injury to the vehicle occupants as stated in the recall letter I would like to know how much longer I will have to wait for fca to get the replacement parts" this is getting absurd and I want my car fixed before I am seriously injured. Why can't the dealer use a different type of airbag or simply remove the defective one so I don't get seriously injured when driving my car?" I am very unhappy with fca and their lack of response. Thank you

Takata recall, dear sirs, this is a record of the Dodge dealership, hunter Dodge of lancaster, ca delaying the repair of this airbag issue. I have called the dealership in June of 2015 and October of 2015. The response from the service department has been that the parts were not in and that we are on a "waiting list". the dealership also indicated that nothing can be done at the present time. I am very concerned regarding the delay in correcting this issue, and am afraid to drive this vehicle. When Dodge says things are going well with this issues, it is not.
