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.

My 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 has been affected by Chrysler recall P40 / NHTSA 14V-354. I took my vehicle into the local Chrysler / Dodge dealership and they determined that I had defective airbag inflators and initiated a parts order to replace them. Almost 8 months have elapsed and they still have not received the parts from Chrysler. Chrysler has not fixed this defect in a timely manner.

Airbag recall problem: I contacted my Dodge dealership on 2/23/15, as instructed by a letter that I received from Chrysler group llc, in reference to an airbag recall. They stated that they did not have the part(s) available at that time, and they would call me back in approximately 7-10 business days when they expected to have the parts and would schedule an appointment with me at that time. They did not call back. I called the fca us recall assistance center on 3/17/15. They apologized that my call to the dealership had not been returned and informed me that there were actually 2 airbag recalls; however, they still did not have the replacement parts available, and they stated that they would call me back when the parts became available. It's going on 2 months since my 1st phone call to Chrysler, and I still haven't received a phone call in reference to the status of the replacement of the defective airbags!
