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.

I have received as of today 3 recall notices on my vehicle concerning seat belts. I visited my dealership after receiving the first notice and was told they would contact me when the parts came in, I didn't record that date, I assume it was in May. Received the second notice in June and went to the dealership 6/25/2015 and was told they would contact me in July and correct both recalls at the same time. Received third notice today and still haven't heard from my dealership. Looks like Chrysler is better at sending recall notices than actually correcting problems"???? what would you say"
