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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Takata recall, I received two separated recalls for my vehicle the dealer I called for service has the driver airbag inflator but does not have a clue when the passenger airbag inflator will be available. I received the P78/NHTSA 14V770 over a year ago and it stated that I should contact a dealer for service on or after February 23, 2015. It is now February 18, 2016 and neither the dealer nor Chrysler can give me any idea when the parts will be available. I am waiting for both parts to be available before I have any repairs completed on my vehicle
