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.

Trying for several months to get local dealership to replace front and passenger air bag inflators per recalls 14V-770 and 15V-313. Dealer insists that no parts are available. Called Dodge recall resolution team on two occasions and they were unable to schedule service with this dealership. Recalls are useless if dealerships refuse or delay repairs. Would be interested to know what recourse is available or what next steps should be taken.
