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.

Takata recall: My dealership has not replaced the airbags yet and they say they don't know when they can. I think they are stalling. This is a dangerous situation and they need to fix it or find some other company that will.

I just spoke with fca regarding the status of the recall for the passenger air bag. I was notified several months ago about the problem with the potential danger. The air bag has been disabled exposing my passengers to added risk. I was told today that there is no date yet for the air bag replacement.. I am very frustrated and disappointed with response by all parties on this matter. When will this be remedied?
