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 have been on a repair list at the local dealership since late December of 2015 and am told that as of 3/10/16 they do not expect to have the parts available to repair my vehicle for quite some time. This seems to be far beyond a reasonable time for this repair.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. After the vehicle was serviced under an air bag recall, the vehicle was taken to a dealer where the failure was undetermined; however, the horn needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred an hour later. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer where the technician noticed that the plastic piece was fractured on the steering wheel. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The VIN, NHTSA campaign number, and failure mileage were unknown.

Purchased a used 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 big horn P/U truck from mooresville motor company in mooresville, nc, last week. I noticed the recall on the carfax and "assumed" it had been repaired. I went to www.moparconnect.com and looked up the recall using the VIN. The status states that the driver airbag inflator must be replaced, and that the repair parts are available. I placed a call to the Chrysler group recall assistance center and was told that the parts are not available..... I am very concerned and upset. The young lady at the assistance center told me that the parts were still being tested and that there is no estimated date that they will be available"?????so......what if we have an accident and the airbag deploys and seriously or fatally harms someone?????this vehicle should not have been allowed to have been sold, period! not until the parts are available!!!! I am now afraid to ride or drive this vehicle and I definitely don't want my children or grandchildren in it. I need to know when will parts be available; what do I drive until then; and why was this vehicle even sold??"
