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.

2004 Dodge Viper Owner Comments

Viper V10

Chrysler/Fiat issued recall notice five years ago on Viper and recall affects over 100,000 other Jeeps, Chargers, Challengers, etc. Air bag and seat belt tensioner so can deploy without warning causing serious even fatal accident. By filing recall, manufacturer dodges liability and potential lawsuits. NO LAWYER WILL SUE THEM.

It is cheaper for them to refuse to fix problem claiming they don't have a $15.00 part than to fix them and no concerns about negative publicity or litigation. Government inforcement and consumer rights are meaningless.

The bigger the auto company, the more immune they are to government intervention who do not look out for consumers as witnessed by the over 50 million cars currently on recall. Lawyers are also to blame as the ambulance chasers are making too much money from insurance companies on an epidemic of wrecks so they have no reason to file expensive civil suits on recalls. In a word, they like the government could care less.
