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.

Complaint against Chrysler group. Recall N46/NHTSA 13V-252: Re: "the fuel tank on your vehicle has a chance of experiencing a fuel leak during certain types of rear end collisions. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source can result in a fire." I have called Chrysler group 1 X in August 2014 (beginning of recall), November, January and 02/16/15. They have failed to get my parts to the local dealer in a timely manner, therefore putting me at risk of a rear end collision ignition of flames. I need these parts sent to my local dealer immediately. My local dealer is only getting parts at the rate of 5 pieces per week, to fix the more than hundreds of thousands of customers. That is Chrysler fault. Not the dealers. I waited to speak w/Chrysler, on the phone for 1 hour & 25 minutes on 02/16/15, trying to get this resolved. It was the customer service dept, for this particular recall. I never got to speak w/a live person. This is unacceptable. I need my parts sent to my local dealer immediately....updated 05/14/15 the consumer stated the vehicle was repaired. Updated 05/28/15
