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.

My sister was in a fatal car accident June 23rd 2015. About a week and a half after her death we received a recall for the trucks rear axle pinion nut. Then a week after that we received another recall in the mail regarding the driver airbag inflator. During the incident her trucks right rear tire was snapped at the axle leaving us to believe that the pinion nut was loose and caused this rear axle to seize and break. In the crash all of the airbags failed to deploy. The pinion nut recall was issued in February of 2015 and we are questioning why it took Chrysler 5 months to provide us with this information.

I received a formal recall notice (P77/NHTSA 14V-796) which stated a safety concern with my truck's rear pinion nut that may come loose or fall off. When I called our local Dodge dealer in westerly, Rhode Island they told me they wouldn't have the corrective parts for about 2-3 months" this being a safety concern and my second notice from Chrysler why are parts not available" it seems I have two recalls in an open status and can't get either one repaired by Chrysler at this time. A concerned Chrysler owner.

  • 38,000 miles
Receiving notifications from Fiat Chrysler automobiles about recalls R25 and P77. I originally brought the vehicle in to the dealership approx 3-4 months ago, ramsey, NJ, Chrysler Jeep Dodge. They stated they did not have parts. I called fca and they stated parts should be available in June. Called the same dealership on wed July 8th, they asked for recall notice info. Amazingly the VIN was not enough. Amazingly they had no record of me being their previously for the recall and they said they are checking on the availability of parts. Note they have now changed the original recall id on P81/NHTSA 14V-817 to R25 / NHTSA 15V-313 on the air bag one. Since both of these are potentially life threatening I need to get this resolved.
