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.

While I have been lucky that nothing has happened yet, when I contacted my local Dodge dealer about the recalls I was told there were no parts and they did not know when the parts would be made. Some of the complaints that I have read state some have paid mechanics to make the repairs, if mechanics can get the parts why can Chrysler not.

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 46,000 miles
I received a safety recall notice from Dodge concerning the rear axle pinion nut and passenger air bag. I called the Dodge dealer ([xxx]) in omaha, ne. I was informed the necessary repair parts are not available. They have no idea when or if these parts will be available. They tell me that a crash could occur and it is my decision whether to park the car or continue driving. This is not fair. I need a vehicle and cannot afford a new one. My truck is old but only has 46,000 miles on it. Thank you. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
