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 was informed early last year via recall notice about the issue, when I contacted Dodge to get service they informed me that the parts were not available. I inquired about the safety of driving and they commented..if you don't feel safe you should not drive the vehicle. That is a poor answer for a $400.00 vehicle. Another issue that is a real safety matter even though denied by Dodge is the dashboard on the truck is a hazard due to chunks that fly at you due to the breakdown of the inferior plastic that was utilized...according to a former service manager @ Dodge. I went to Dodge and they stated it was poor maintenance and had I asked during my warranty would of covered a portion of the repair. How is this poor treatment when you google the issue and thousands of comments appear on this matter? below it requests the date, I am unsure of the exact date just recall it being early last year

My complaint refers to NHTSA-safety recall number: R26/nhtsa15V-312; recall date: May 29,2015.involving the takata airbag inflators: My vehicle was named: 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 with a cummins diesel by the manufacturer, Chrysler, dba ""fca- us -llc pobx 218008, auburn hills Michigan. One week later, I notified my local Dodge dealer: (huntington New York Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram located at 1220 East jericho turnpike, huntington, New York 11743, phone: 1-866-525-7118. I called the dealership today and their reply was, "the part to correct this is still not in". this is a very serious health & safety issue. It has been 8 months since my recall notice. I want your Agency to determine if Chrysler has put a plan in place to deliver the parts to the dealers and what is the specific timeline and provide the public with the name, job title, address & phone number of the persons at Chrysler who are being held accountable for this remedy, yet to be performed.

Takata recall. I set the notice aside and misplaced it. Out of sight, out of mind. I received it so long ago I have forgotten the date. I have never received the notice that the part is in and to bring my truck in for replacement. I received two recalls before on steering problems and was told that they didn't qualify even though I had already had to have them fixed on my own.
