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.

  • 34,000 miles
I spoke to micki at newnan peachtree Dodge on 2/23/15 and 5/14/15 pertaining to recall P78/NHTSA 14V-770 air bag notice. My first contact on 2/23, I was told Chrysler has not released the parts. My second contact on 5/14, I was told the parts were shipped and the harness for the device was too short. I was told to continue to follow up with them on parts status. They have made no progress in three months and I'm following the protocol set out in the advisory. I cannot allow my son to drive this vehicle with this issue. I'm glad to see that this is up for a public hearing.
