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 recall notice for an ignition switch, last summer. I contacted fox negaunee, which is the only Jeep dealer in marquette. I was told that they did not have enough parts on hand to complete all the vehicles at the time, and they would get back to me and put me on a list. That was the last time I heard from them. It has been about 9 months. Recall number, P41/NHTSA 14V-438
