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 been getting these recall for two years and every time I go to the Dodge dealer (helms motors in lexington Tennessee 38351) they say the same thing "no parts, call you when we get them". what am I to do with the recalls? I have six on this Jeep and none have been fixed. I thank you for any help you can give me on the problem.

I brought my Jeep in for a recall N46. The dealership told Chrysler they did the recall but my sheet from them said inspect per recall did not pass inspection too rusted. I called your Agency who told me to call Chrysler. I called Chrysler and they said that I personally would have to pay for all the areas that needed to be repaired due to rust and then they would pay for the recall. They built a faulty vehicle. That is not my fault. It is not my fault the Jeep has rusted. I feel it is Chrysler's responsibility to pay for all necessary repairs so the recall can be completed and the vehicle's safety can be increased.

I have 2 recalls on my Jeep right now. N46 and R06- I was told today because I lived in winter conditions that the N46 - cannot be installed because there is corrosion in the frame of the car making it impossible for the hitch to be installed. So if I am in a collision and rear ended my fuel tank could explode. The R06 could not be preformed which is the occupant restraint control module because there have been no parts available since February of 2015. So I could be driving and my airbags could deploy which will result in an accident. I called the fca recall assistance center and they were unable to give me a solution to either issue. I took time off of work to have these issues resolved and it was a waste of my day and time not to mention the fact that my vehicle is unsafe to drive.
