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.

We received a recall notice which is not dated and called but the dealership said they don't have the part and will contact us when they do. This recall can cause injury and/or death and I am expected to drive and it, it is not a big deal to Chrysler Dodge. They continue to make money and new vehicles but allow their loyal customers to drive unsafe vehicles. There was not an estimated follow up given to us on this problem. Before a recall is even done there are injuries or death which start this process and we feel completely unsafe driving this vehicle especially with children. Is this legal or even moral? if something happens to my family I feel Chrysler and or your department should be 100% liable. I expect a response immediately due to the seriousness of this matter. I will also follow up. Thank you, see contact information below.

Pulled into a parking spot in front of goodwill, foot on the brake, the truck surged forward, smashed into a metal pole, caved in my grill, bumper and hood and the airbag did not deploy. I had a bump on my head from the steering wheel and my wrists were bruised from hitting the dash. I took my truck to benny boyd here in marble falls per instructions from my insurance company and mark ball, the man who sold me the truck, told me to 'piss off' then filed a 'criminal no trespass' against me so I can't go back to the place I bought it.

We have contacted the dealership and have been told that they do not have the parts to fix our truck. It has been 4 months since the recall was issued and we are still waiting for parts to arrive. We are afraid to drive our truck because according to the recall letter an accident could result in a death because of defective parts. We continue to contact the dealership, crown Dodge of fayetteville, nc and continue to be told the parts are not in. We have a 6 hour trip planned in the near future and need this truck to be road worthy.
