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 contacting you regarding the issue of the airbags being dangerous in my 2005 Dodge Ram pickup. I have recently been notified that the drivers side airbag is available ( which I will get replaced) but there is " no remedy" for the passenger side airbag. I have also been told by my local dealer that it is not a "Dodge issue" regarding a replacement vehicle until a "remedy" can be found! this is where I disagree! if I am correct, Dodge bought the item from takata to place in their vehicles. If the part has a recall placed on it then is a "Dodge problem"" and shouldn't the manufacturer be responsible for furnishing a replacement vehicle until the unsafe part has been replaced" this vehicle is my everyday driver /commuter to and from work and transporting my family to sports functions and anything in between! I find it unexceptable that Dodge has not taken ownership in helping people in my situation since the main problem is the fact that a vehicle they sell doesn't have a remedy fix for the indefinite future ( per the dealer)! Dodge needs to do one of two things, either furnish a replacement vehicle or replace my vehicle entirely with an acceptable replacement.

  • 205,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. When the contact started the vehicle, the air bag warning indicator illuminated continuously. The failure occurred only after the vehicle was serviced per NHTSA campaign number: 15V313000 (air bags). During the installation of the recall part, the steering wheel restraint module was damaged and removed from the vehicle. The mechanic replaced the recall part a second time because the restraint module was no longer being produced by the manufacturer, but the failure persisted. The contact was concerned of a potential safety hazard due to the restraint module no longer being equipped in the vehicle, which affected the deployment of the driver's side air bag. The manufacturer was notified and stated that a salvage title could be issued. The approximate failure mileage was 205,000.
