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.

Rear lift gate window unlatches on it's own, whether the vehicle is running or not. The Chrysler service department was well aware of the problem, and told me that the switch in the latch can activate on it's own, and that the latch would need to be replaced. Paid over $180 for a new switch and 5 months later, the window is popping open on its own again. Besides letting in the cold in the winter, heat in the summer, we are also exposed to exhaust fumes when this is open. It's currently being held shut (but not sealed) with a tie strap.

I was driving down the highway and I don't really remember the moment before the accident but I lost control of my car and hit the median barricade head on and from there my car kept going across the highway off to the grass area. I was the only one injured and taken to the hospital. My car is ruined and I faced a broken nose, back, knee, knock, head, and shoulder brushing and pain, and now I keep having a short term memory on some occasions. I also get nauseated when K get in a vehicle and get terrified when I'm with someone driving down the street. I have no vehicle at the time, it's been almost two and a half months and I haven't had any help with anything. I am a full time college student working a part time job, my sister or boyfriend have to take me to work and school, it's getting pretty tiring for them to take me everywhere. I work about 15 minutes away from my home and it's difficult for them to take me when they have school and work on those days. The air bags in my Jeep did not deploy, it went in for the recall and you can literally see the sensors, the clearly should have deployed. My Jeep had no engine or air bag codes of any kind.. so why didn't they go off?! I'm terrier that im going to loose my job and not afford to pay rent or bills.
