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 moved to a small town. I have received three recall notices. The nearest dealership that can service my Jeep continues to tell me " those parts are not available ". after that, no one would bother to even return my emails. I realize they make no money performing a recall, but why am I to be punished" I found a dealership in medford Oregon, about 120 miles away, left my information and I am waiting for a response from them. The recall of my ball joints was fixed immediately. I lived in a large area. So now with three new recalls and no one to fix the issues, what can I do? do you have any influence over these dealerships to make them fix the problems" the way it stands now my steering will go out just as my airbag deploys, causing someone to rear end me, and with the new faulty gas tank recall, a collision will ensue thus blowing up my Jeep, me, the faulty air bag, and the recalled steering mechanism! I don't look good in " blown up". anything you can do would be helpful. Thank you!

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

I received a notification of the defect in the occupant restraint control module a couple of years ago and every time that I called the dealer, they advised that they did not have the replacement parts. I called them today and they tell me on 3/25/15 that they now have the parts but cannot repair the vehicle until 8/7/15. Also - I need to have the "trailer hitch" inspected and likely replaced to avoid fuel leakage if there were a rear-end accident. This is completely unacceptable. What is the point of "recalling" vehicles when they cannot be repaired in a timely fashion? so I should just feel glad that I have a reason to sue someone if a family member is terribly injured or dies in a crash in the interim couple of years. Please provide me with an acceptable resolution to this problem. I expect some sort of an answer!
