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 have 2 recalls from Jeep and nothing has been done for years, they are P41/NHTSA 14V-438 and P73. Every time I go into the dealership they say they can't get the parts. The forms they send out don't have a date on them so they are smart enough not to have any incriminating evidence as to how long the customer sits on these and they are waiting for an accident or the customer sells the car and the paper work gets lost. These vehicle manufacturers need to be jacked up a little bit and be given an ultimatum to get these recalls fixed before something serious is caused by there criminal intent to not to fix these recalls.

There seems to be a problem with the ignition switch. The vehicle dashboard instrument panel (speedometer, odometer, fuel, temp gauges) will shut off while driving. Power is also lost to all exterior lights, the ac/heat, and radio. This happens sporadically but can be manipulated by wiggling the key while it is in the ignition and the car is on. When driving at night this is extremely dangerous and has left me stranded on several occasions.
