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.

Received a safety recall in the fall of 2014. The dealer did not have the part to repair. After several months and a few more calls still no parts. I then received an additional safety recall on the same defect and called the dealer again and was told they still did not have the parts to make the repair. It has been a year now since the first notice and my question is this. Is it a safety recall or not?

2008 Jeep Commander. Consumer writes in regards to wireless ignition switch mode recall notice. The consumer stated the wireless ignition mode was replaced on December 15, 2011. During the following year, the consumer frequently lost power while driving. While the most frequently moments occurred after she began driving, it also occurred while driving at higher speeds including the freeway. The dealer was unable to determine the problem and suggested a tune-up and throttle body fuel system service. The problem continued and the consumer eventually found that if she tapped on the key after the starting the vehicle, she could determined if it was fully engaged.
