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.

Takata recall I recently received the safety recall notice in the mail and spoke with an fca employee about the recall at the number provided. The recall states that it could injure or kill myself or my family yet I was not provided with any assistance in finding another means of transportation while waiting on the recall parts to become available. Will a rental vehicle be provided while I wait for parts, as I no longer feel safe driving my vehicle?

My vehicle has two safety recalls. I've been calling the local dealer here for over a year and they refuse to make these repairs. I continually told the parts are not in, and that they are not notified when parts will be available, but they call me constantly trying to sell me a new vehicle. The local dealer is david stanley Dodge.
