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 waited a long time to receive the recall notice from Jeep and received it late in 2015. I called my local dealership, world Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram in shrewsbury NJ in October and then again November 11, 2016. Both times I was told my name would go on a list and I would be called to have the new ignition installed on my vehicle asap. It is not February 11, 2016 and my Jeep has not been repaired and the dealership has not called me. I fear for the safety of myself and my 2 children every time I drive my car.
