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.

Air bag stays on. I took to dealer in fairbanks, ak. Was told there's a recall but no remedy yet. However, they could fix it for $1,000. Since I did not choose to pay $1,000, they made me sign a form indicating I'm aware that the airbags may not deploy in an accident. How is it they can fix it if I fork over $1,000 but not able to as a recall? so now I'm going drive for months until they get a remedy just like the hitch problem. Both of which are serious safety issues.

Recall 15V-046 it has been 7 months with no remedy in sight. This recall should be added to the NHTSA suit against Fiat Chrysler automotive. We are driving potential time bombs as the air bag could deploy at any given moment causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, not only harming the occupants but also other people nearby.the NHTSA has a duty to push this manufacturer to make these repairs a top priority or get these vehicles off the road.

On July 15, 2015 I was traveling on a 4 lane road, in town at approximately 35 mph when the airbags in my 2002 Jeep Liberty spontaneously deployed. The road was smooth, I hadn't hit my brakes, or struck anything when they deployed. Fortunately there was a county deputy sheriff 2 vehicles behind my who stopped to offer assistance and call ems. My injuries were minor. Bruising from my elbow to my wrist along with cuts and scrapes on my right arm. I went to the er for an X-ray because of the immediate swelling and the emt who arrived at the scene recommended it to rule out a broken arm. I contacted Chrysler, who informed me that my Jeep was part of the #R06 recall which involved the random deployment of airbags, and while they can repair my airbags and dash, they can't fix the module that actually caused my airbags to deploy. Those parts are not available at this time. In other words, my new airbags could deploy again without warning. I received a recall letter regarding this problem months ago and was told at the time that the parts were not available to repair the problem. I no longer feel safe in my Jeep.
