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.

We have been waiting months now to remedy this recall for a fuel tank issue where it can explode. This is ridiculous. Every time we go they always say they don't have the part. Expressway Jeep in mt vernon, in.

There was a safety recall announced by the manufacuturer in Q4 2013 M46 / NHTSA 13V-252. I contacted the Jeep dealer gator automotive group on April 7, 2014 to check on the status of the recall and to make an appointment for the repair. I did not do so previously as the announcement stated that they would contact us. No appointment or parts were available at that time and the dealer representative hung up the phone on me. Next I called the manufacturer and got the same response that they had no parts and I had to wait for them to contact me. It is now July 29, 2014 and I have never heard back from neither the dealer nor the manufacturer. This is unacceptable to me as this is a safety recall. Can somebody please provide me with an update on this recall or contact the manufacturer about this. The issue is an exploding gas tank. Thank you.

Good afternoon, I received a rear structure reinforcement letter from Chrysler and the national traffic safety administration stating that certain 2002-2007 model year Jeep Liberty vehicles contain defect related to motor vehicle safety. Problem: The fuel tank on vehicle has a small 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 an underbody fire. What dealer will do: Chrysler intends to inspect your vehicle and install an oem trailer hitch where appropriate, free of charge (parts and labor) to better manage crash forces in low-speed impact I called the dealer and it turns out they do not have the parts to fix the problem, and Chrysler is responsible for sending them the parts. They said I would receive another letter once they had received the parts but I never received a letter/call back. I received the recall letter a few months ago and yet have not received a call and just about forgot about until my husband asked about it. I am almost 8 months pregnant and quite worried driving the car but I need it. I hope you can help me get this resolved as soon as possible because in 2 weeks I'm getting my future child's carseat installed and would like this other safety problem to be solved. Thank you in advance for your help and attention
