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.

Last year, 11/25/2015, I took my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee to a jacksonville dealership to have the orc module replaced to prevent an inadvertent deployment of the airbag while driving the vehicle. The dealership informed me that they do not have a replacement part last year and when I checked with them today, 11/2/2016, they informed me that they still do not have a replacement part. Is this some kind of joke...my automobile has the potential of an inadvertent deployment of the airbags, and possibility of causing a crash without warning, and all dealerships have not provided a replacement part for this recall in almost a year? this is a lawyers dream case!

I received a recall notice in November of 2015 about my airbags so I immediately called dick hannah Jeep who told me that the parts weren't released yet and that someone would call me. I had forgotten about it because they said they would call me once they had it. Last week I was going through my paperwork and found the recall so I contacted Jeep on twitter who said the parts were in fact available.so I told them and they still said that the parts were not available so I told them that makes no sense Jeep said that they are and they checked and then here we are 10/15/16 finally getting it done. So I have been driving this car since then and I could have died.
