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.

The vehicles may experience loss of air bag and seat belt pretensioner deployment capability in certain crash events due to a pretensioner deployment capability in certain crash events due to a shorting condition resulting in a negative voltage transient that travels to the occupant restraint controller via front impact sensor wires.

The driver side headrest was in the raised position while I was in transit. I stopped at a traffic light and reached up to push the headrest down to the lower position. I pressed the slide button on the base of the headrest with one hand and pushed down on the headrest with the other hand. The headrest blew apart hitting me in the back of the head when it did so. There was no impact to my vehicle that would have caused the headrest to pop in that manner. I did not hit the headrest but pushed firmly to try and lower it to a more comfortable position. I tried to have the headrest reset and closed but was told by a service technician that the head]rest was in fact broken and needed to be replaced.

Brought 2014 Jeep Compass in for a safety and emission inspection. 2014 Jeep Compass failed emissions test. 21000 miles. New York state. Jeep Chrysler has been unwillingly to provide loaner vehicle and correct the problem in a timely manner. My inspection is only good until the end of February and this manner needs to be urgently resolved.

I was driving approximately 10 miles an hour in a parking lot and my engine stalled and began to smoke. I reached out to the dealership where I purchased my vehicle first and no one would return my car. There is an additional recall that impacts my vehicle which has to do with the hijacking of the vehicle navigational system/blue tooth. I cannot get resolution from the dealership. State line Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealer #45636/45636

I have taken this car 3 times to the dealer and now it is going on the 4th time to fix a squeaky sound. I am tired of returning. It needs to be fixed and by the way after 4 times I do believe it is considered a new car lemon.
