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 am writing to relate my experiences in attempting to have the safety recall service work, regarding the airbag recalls, performed on my vehicle. The safety recalls are referred to as P78 (driver side airbag) and R25 (passenger side airbag). Over the last three months I have tried on multiple occurrences, to arrange this service recall work via dealerships directly and with the fca us recall assistance center - during which both the fca recall assistance center and the dealerships have expressed that they have no idea on either part availability eta or when the service recall work could be performed. Initially I attempted personally calling dealerships, but was unsuccessful in securing an appointment due to dealerships either not responding or dealerships having no idea on part availability or when recall service could be made. I then attempted calling the fca (Fiat Chrysler automobiles) recall assistance center on separate occasions. With an fca rep, myself and a dealership all on the same call, the dealership confirmed parts and appointment. After appointment the P78 recall fix had not been done - marked no parts no eta. I called the fca recall assistance again, and after almost an hour of myself and the fca rep together calling dealerships, all the dealerships again expressed they had no idea on when the parts would be available and no idea when the service recall could be performed. I apologize if this is the incorrect forum (website suggested by fca) to relate these fca and dealership experiences. I appreciate this is a huge recall affecting millions of vehicle and vehicle owners. I thought it maybe worthwhile to relate my experiences of both the fca and the dealerships, repeatedly conveying they have no idea on parts eta and no idea as to when the service recall work could be done. Thank you information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Both driver and passenger airbags did not deploy at impact! vehicle is a total loss due to the outcome of the collision. Vehicle struck a barn and exited out of it until struck a massive tree which finally stopped the truck. The vehicle was in the taylor Jeep dealership for air bag recall and was told they checked it out and found that I needed a special sensor for the recall repair and I will be contacted. I'm assuming what ever the technicians did might not have connected the airbags correctly resulting in them not deploying.
