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 was notified by safety recall notice S43/NHTSA 16V-352 and registered the vehicle on July 15, 2015 as instructed and haven't been contacted since to have vehicle repaired. Local Dodge dealers have no information on the recall and will not repair the vehicle. What type of scam is this? must I be killed or injured before something is done.

Had drivers side airbag recall installed by dealer. Passenger side not available. With the installation of new air bag on drivers site the switch to turn off the passenger airbag gave red air bag symbol indication problem..cost almost $300 to replace switch and still passenger air bag on recall.. Dodge said switch not covered in recall. It should be as no light before replacement.when I drove the vehicle to the dealer. Is the switch covered in recall? if not why not as integral part of passenger side airbag. Vehicle stationary with airbag light on. Dodge dealer returned vehicle with airbag light on to me. I returned for waring light fix. In other word they sent it out of shop with the passenger side waring light on.
