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.

In March I received a safety recall from Chrysler about the above parts and that a crash cold occur if not repaired. I made several phone calls to Chrysler and was advised that they were working on it and have not received any information on when they would make the repair. I feel that since it is a safety recall it should not take 9 months for them to come up with a solution and make the repair.

Received a safety recall notice N08/NHTSA 13V-038 early in 2013. Checked with my dealer as instructed and was told that there were no parts available. Have not heard anything since. If this problem is serious and needs to be fixed, I would think the people involved would be more prone to getting it done.

I received a recall notice that stated, the rear axle pinion nut on my 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 may loosen or fracture. A loose pinion nut could cause the rear axle to lock up. At highway speeds it could let the axle fly off and lead to loss of vehicle control and/or a crash. I received the official recall notice in January of 2013. I then went to the car dealership. They told me they didn't have parts to check back when Dodge gets the parts made. I was at the dealership today to pick up my truck that was supposedly repaired for chronic problems with etc light coming on and throttle sticking or racing. I checked with the dealership monthly and as of today still no parts. This is a serious problem and could result in a deadly crash. Please address this issue. One of these trucks pass everyone every day, not to mention I drive one.

In April of this year I received a recall notice #N08 from Chrysler group llc, regarding the rear axle pinion nut. I immediately contacted my Dodge dealer who informed me that the part(s) were not available and to check back in a few weeks. I have checked for the last 5 months and to date the part(s) are still not available. Why" it's my safety and of my family to get this repaired asap, what about other vehicles on the road that are effected or might be involved in a crash of one that does have this problem? this is totally unacceptable, why hasn't your organization taking steps to correct this situation? you are suppose to stay on top of this, what part of safety do you not understand"

My dealer has been unable to repair my Dodge truck for the safety recall N08/NHTSA 13V-038 for a long time. I received this recall notice a long time ago and have contacted them 3 times since that and they continue to say they do not have the parts to repair this condition. Can something be done to hurry this process along? thank you.

We were notified of a recall on our 2011 Dodge Ram pick up concerning the rear axle pinion nut. I called our dealership to schedule the repair. Safety recall N08 / NHTSA 13V/038. I was told that the parts and repair plan were not available at this time and was urged to call the Chrysler group recall assistance center at 800-853-1403. I called the cgrac and was told that the parts and plan of service weren't available at this time but I would be notified by E-mail when it was. I made sure they understood that we are retired travelers who pull a 32' travel trailer frequently and that a sudden "lack of motive power" might put our lives in extreme danger. It was suggested that we "not tow or haul anything" until this is sorted out.
