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.

I received a safety recall notice N49/NHTSA 13V-529 for above truck in 12/13. I took truck to napleton Dodge lake park, fl. Tel. # 561-622-0101 and was told the parts had to be ordered. Since then I had numerous contacts with the dealer's parts department. The parts clerks told me Chrysler is limiting the number of repair parts needed to clear the recall. They first said the dealer could only order 2 a week. On 2/19/14 the parts clerk said Chrysler has reduced the number to one every seven day, and that I was 50th on the list and they couldn't even order my parts for 350 days. They were sorry but there was nothing they could do since Chrysler was limiting the ordering. The dealer has been polite but they blame the problem on Chrysler not having the parts. I am concerned since I do not want to drive for a year with unsafe suspension especially since I frequently tow heavy loads.

Recall N49. I got a notice from Dodge that my call is on recall for the left tie rod ball stud on my truck may fracture. This could cause a loss of directional control and crash without warning. I made an appointment to get it fix and was told I have to wait 36 week before the part are here. This is unacceptable because the car could crash.
