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 received a letter that my truck was recalled for the drivers side air bags and parts are not available. 4 months later the parts are still not available and no one can tell me if it is safe to drive my truck. I have read all kinds of things and they make it sound like it is not safe but you never know. What am I suppose to tell my wife and 2 year old son. The dealers say they are not offering loaner or rental cars so I have no option but to drive my truck. My dealer did say to try to limit the driving until the parts come in which could be a year yet. How are you suppose to do that? I really think they need to be providing loaners to the vehicles that the drivers side air bag is affected. I am really hoping I am not in a accident or anything because no one knows what could happen. This really needs to be taken serious as there has been people seriously injured and killed.

I contacted Chrysler 3 times and no one wanted to address this problem, this was not caused by an accident, theres no frame or external damages caused to the vehicle, this shouldn't of happened, I was driving normal and the airbags shot out of nowhere bruising my arm and around my collar. I driving the car the way it is with no horn, seatbelts locked, and bags exposed. I have no way of getting to work so im forced to drive like this, I need this to be adressed because this is putting me and who ever sits in my car in danger because Chrysler does not want to take action, I shouldn't have to pay for this if this is somethimg that comes defective from factory.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
Driving home from night school on a local, rural highway, cross traffic has stop signs... I was northbound at the posted speed limit of 55mph. A 2008 Toyota 4runner was waiting on a cross street to go westbound, said car abruptly attempted to cross infront of me. I managed to get my foot to the brakes the instant before impact, estimated speed at impact was 50mph. No air bag deployment. My truck was a total loss. I "T-boned" the 4runner in the driver door, it was sent rolling, coming to a rest on its driver side 25 feet in front of my Ram 1500 about 60 feet West of the roadway. How is it possible my air bags didn't deploy" why didn't my lawyers sue Chrysler" I had a severe chest contusion from my seatbelt, strained back, my left arm was jammed from finger tips to shoulder and I had a fracture and strain in my hand/wrist that required weeks of rehab. Its 3 1/2 years later and I still have daily pain and stiffness.
