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 have contacted my local dealer - (where I purchased the vehicle and where I have warranty and regular work done)tommy vaughn Dodge 4850 East interstate 10 ? columbus, tx 78934 on two different times in person. Both times I was told I would be put on their "waiting list" but that they only did one recall repair per week due to part supply restrictions by the manufacturer.

Ram 3500 6-cyl Diesel

  • 46,275 miles
I received a safety recall notice N49/NHTSA 13V-529 in January 2014. I called flower motor company in montrose co. I was informed by service department that parts were not available yet. Called back on February 27, 2014 and was told that flower motors could order 1 part every 14 days. I was put on a waiting list of over 100 people. I called Chrysler the same day and confirmed that they are limiting small dealerships to 1 part every 14 days and large dealerships to 1 part every 7 days. I believe this is a safety problem and Chrysler is not dealing with it in a responsible manner. I feel that Chrysler is more interested in not spending money than they are in the safety of their customers. I hope you can rectify this safety concern.
