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.

Seat belt alarm is malfunctioning. Even though the seat belt is buckled, the alarm constantly goes off while the car is in motion on a city street and a highway. It's a safety hazard because it's a distraction while driving. It also encourages the driver to take off their seat belt to see if they can deactive the sensor by having to rebuckle again.

1) the seat belt casing breaks away from the seat belt making it difficult if not impossible to insert and connect seat belt into receptacle. 2) interior door handle (rear passenger) suddenly quit working, not allowing passenger to exit vehicle. This is a serious safety issue in the event of an accident or other necessary emergency exit scenario.

There is tearing and fraying of the driver's side seat belt which is causing the belt to get stuck in the loops of the seat belt mechanism and making it difficult to buckle the seat belt. The biggest concern is if it does get stuck and lock into place wherein I cannot move or open the belt due to the fact that it gets tight this is definitely a safety hazard. In addition to which, the seat belt does not retract properly due to the tearing. In addition, the seat belt on the passenger side show signs of tearing also. This is definitely a safety hazard issue especially due to the fact of what has happened on the driver's side is now happening on the passenger side. There is obviously a defect in the mechanics, components and/or material of the seat belts and Chrysler is not recognizing this as their responsibility.

1. I was in an accident in which my vehicle rear-ended another. Most of the front end of my vehicle will have to be replaced. The vehicle that was rear-ended is a total loss. 2. at the time of impact I was wearing my safety belt but it did not lock causing my upper body to hit the steering wheel with great force. Also none of my air bags deployed. 3. I have contacted the dealership and Chrysler to make them aware of the failures. At this time, nothing has been done to correct these problems.
