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.

Jeep has two recalls on my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but has done nothing for months. I received a notice recall M35/NHTSA warning that airbags might deploy on their own. So far, Jeep has done nothing to fix it. They sent me a frightening notice and then, nothing. Auto manufacturerers need to be required to fix defects in a timely fashion. I know there is another recall that occurred earlier this summer, and I haven't even gotten a notice about it. So two safety issues and so far, no repair. Should I even be driving this vehicle?

Received safety recall notice M35nhtsa 12V-527 in late 2012 (airbag control module). Advised I would receive followup recall notice when parts were available. Checked local dealer in Feb 2012 and was advised the parts were to be available in March 2012. Just checked dealer today (8/5/13) and was advised they do not have any date from Jeep on when parts would be available. Is anyone from NHTSA following up on this problem ?
