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.

The contact owns a 2002 Jeep Liberty. The contact received NHTSA recall campaign id number: 13V252000 (fuel system, gasoline, structure); however, since the fuel tank on his vehicle had point corners for air it hangs 5 inches beneath the receiver factory hitch; therefore, the tow hitch remedy would not suffice. The contact stated that due to the design of the fuel tank he was concerned that the failure could occur with or without the tow hitch recall remedy. There are no failures at this time.

In mid January was sent a recall notice. Tried to setup an appointment with my dealership for repair. They said the parts were not available yet and I would receive another card stating when it will be available. It is now mid April and no card. I have called twice and theres no status of when I can get this fuel tank recall repaired. There is a danger of underbody fire in rear collisions. I would like this repaired immediately.

I have once again called my Jeep dealership and once again they tell me the parts are still not available to fix this problem.this recall was dated June 2013 - it is now March 2014 - it is going on one year - just how long does it take them to get this part available" if they can not get these parts available now why are they not being held responsible to get me a safer vehicle? they should either get the parts now or get me a safer vehicle now! what are they waiting for? more people to be injured"

This is the third notice I have received regarding the important safety recall of my Jeep Liberty. It says Chrysler intends to install an oem trailer hitch to better manage crash forces in low-speed impacts, but the parts required are still not available. I drive my Jeep around in fear everyday of someone hitting me and exploding into flames with my children inside. I've read articles saying the Jeep is a worse death trap than the pinto ever was! please tell me when will this be rectified?

I own a 2002 Jeep Liberty and had never heard of a recall on the engine! I did get a notice for the air bag issues months ago and have contacted the local dealer who maintains that the parts aren't available. Didn't some other autos have the same problem" have they been fixed? I don't want to have a wreck and the air bags not deploy and then I become a crispy critter. Nor do I want the air bags to deploy when I'm driving down the interstate doing between 60 - 70 miles per hour. Again, possible crash with burning to death. Someone somewhere needs to get Chrysler to work. Do they need a financial handout" guess I'm gonna have to trade this clunker in and get something other than a Jeep. Too bad cause I love my Jeep.
