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.

I have received many recall notices about the occupant restraint control module for my vehicle. I have taken my car to the nearest Jeep dealership to get it serviced. Each time they say that they do not have the parts to fix this recall. I do see the need to inform me of the recall if the dealership is not taking the recall seriously and are making little no efforts to complete it.

Takata recall - I have received 2 different notices regarding this recall and have called the nearest dealership on 8-19-2015, and 8-14-15 and told parts were not available. Received a new notice and called 2-19-16 and told the same thing....do I have to become a statistic before something is done?? I know my Jeep is an older model but it looks brand new, kept in excellent condition and has only 88145 miles on it.

We received an air bag recall from you over a year ago (below date is a guess on when service was performed) regarding a recall on the air bags. We had a Dodge/Jeep dealer in indianola Iowa check for recall. That week after we had vehicle back from this dealer, our air bag light came on. I called the dealer and they told me that it was nothing they did, was very rude to us and said they couldn't fix it unless we paid for repairs. The air bag light was not on before we took vehicle to dealer, but after they did whatever to vehicle this is when the light came on. Within this last year I have contacted this dealer and talked with the service manager which he was very rude and I have left messages with the dealer for another manager or owner of the business to call me, and I still continue to wait for a response from them. Is there anything I can do or you to have this recall checked to make sure repairs were done", and done correctly", as with the light on after repairs were made, makes me concerned for the safety of everyone.
