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 just notified for a problem with my air bag. I had another recall about my gas filler tube, repaired by Dodge. I was not notified about any of the front suspension recalls or problems with the wheel bearing. This part failed about two years ago and I had it replaced but never received a recall. I still have the original wheel bearing part that was given me at replacement. What is going on" is my front end going to fail while my family is driving it" I only have 89,000 miles on my truck. I would like an answer.

There is a safety recall on the driver airbag inflator. The Fiat Chrysler website claims that the part is available and should contact a dealer to have it repaired. I called the dealer and they claim there are not any parts and do not know when there will be any parts.

I've tried calling several dealerships to get the airbag fixed under recall R25 (Chrysler recall 15V-313) and there are no parts available for several months. Contacted Chrysler via chat window and all I got was I'd be notified when the parts were ready.

The key easily disengages from the "run" position and cuts off the engine, causing loss of steering and control. This can even occur if the key is accidentally bumped by your knee. This is identical to the reported affects of the NHTSA campaign number: 14V373000. My 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 is not listed in that notice. This is a very dangerous issue, and doing an internet search there are other owners that have reported the same issue.
