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 was involved in an accident that was totaled my truck. The front of the truck was totally junked and front bumper was damaged. During the accident the airbags never went off. I believe that this is a great issue and should be addressed. I have contacted Dodge direct but they have not gotten back to me on this problem.

I am curious to the concern that I should have about my 2006 Dodge. I have had 3 recalls on my vehicle since its purchase. One for airbag issues, one for a seat belts, and the most recent one for ball bearing issues that could allow the front wheels to become loose and fall off of the vehicle. All of these are life changing events if they happen. How many recalls can one vehicle have?
