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.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

In October 2015, I received a safety recall notice from Fiat Chrysler automobiles (fca), regarding the driver and/or passenger airbags. I immediately called windward Dodge, kaneohe, Hawaii, to schedule a repair appointment. I was told by the service advisor that the parts were on a large backorder and he would contact me once the parts arrived. Since then, I received four more safety recall notices regarding the driver and/or passenger air bags. I called windward Dodge several times to follow-up on parts availability, left messages for a call back with negative results. I received a phone call in November 2015 from fca alerting me of said safety recall. I informed fca that I have taken the steps to schedule the repair, but still have not heard back from the dealership. I was told by the fca rep that they will contact windward Dodge and I should be expecting a call from them. I still have not received a phone call to date. It is now Monday, 11 Jan 16. If this is such an "important safety recall" like the notice says at the top of the page, then why is fca and their dealerships not acting with a sense of urgency to get these repairs done. Appreciate the assist! thank you for your time.
