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.

Grand Cherokee

  • 86,000 miles
I was driving down the road when both of my airbags deployed. Chrysler after two weeks of toying with me offered to 1 total my car and pay me kelly blue book value or 2 give me 1,000 dollars and wait until parts came in. They told me however they did not know when parts would be available in the us and that they were not going to pay for the inside damage created by the airbags deploying. I have two family members who drive vehicles in which this recall applies to. I would never recommend to anyone that they should purchase a vehicle from Chrysler. They do not help at all even when they know it is their fault. They are aware of this issue and are doing nothing to the 700,000 plus people driving these vehicles. Thank goodness I wasn't seriously injured but what if next time it does seriously hurt a driver.

I received a safety recall notice in January 2013 and it has yet to be resolved nor has there been any follow-up notice. Every time I call to check on it I am told that the dealer does not have the parts. I question if there is any intention to make the stated repair at all. The safety recall is from Chrysler. It is an airbag system occupant restraint control module. Safety recall M35/NHTSA 12V-527.

I was driving and I rear ended a truck driving between 30 and 35 miles per hour. Brakes were not applied there were no skid marks. The air bags failed to deploy. I contacted Jeep service regarding the issue and was informed that there is a recall on the airbag system. I asked to please schedule my vehicle for service on this recall and was told that no one in the United States had the parts to fix the problem. I am extremely concerned that this could happen again.
