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 received a Chrysler safety recall notice over a year and a half ago for faulty ignition switch for our 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I've contacted my local Jeep dealer numerous times with the same story that the replacement part isn't available. My Jeep is starting to experience issues with the ignition and the dealer tells me they can replace the ignition with a new one subject to the same recall issues at my expense non reimbursable since the part is not the new improved replacement ignition. This is very concerning as the vehicle is not safely reparable and experiencing issues. Please advise !
