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.

I was driving at 40 mph when a vehicle ran a red light and I T-boned the other vehicle. The airbags in my vehicle never deployed. This was a hard hitting front end collision that caused by vehicle to spin two times around and leave my vehicle facing the opposite direction after spinning around twice. The police officer on the scene said he was amazed that the airbags did not deploy.

A recent recall was done to the 2003 Jeep Liberty in March 2014 and it all went fine. A few days later the air bag light randomly turns on and off. I took it to the dealership and was told the airbag module needs to be replaced and it will run about $570. Now after reading the forums all Chrysler did was add a harness to prevent the airbags from deploying instead of replacing the module. I am also told that in the dallas area there is no module available for replacement. The dealership told me that the light being on would not affect the activation of the airbag in a accident. There was no previous problems before the M35 recall was done.

The car had been acting funny, going fast then making a noise and going ok again. I am not a fast driver as in November my husband of 32 years, passed after being in a hit and run, from people with no insurance, my life is pretty much hell. I was starting to smell something funny like burning and I thought I maybe a tire or strut. I was at a signal second car in and loots of traffic, including school buses. There was a gas station about 30-40 feet from me, but the first car went in to get gas, so on second thought going by the pumps was not a good idea, so I put on signal and tried to pulled over. Car were speeding past me and the car began to accelerate and it will to the right, I turned left or pulled to the left, crashed into a pole hard. Seat belt went flying off, air bags on side did not go off, but front ones did. I broke my leg and bruises, plus a black eye. Since the week before I lost my job, I am doomed, have to try to find a job, because I can:T my car get unemployment. I loved my car first and only car I have ever had.is there anything you could do to help as I have had many recalls and had them checked, but those is just so strange I thought I had.

I received a safety recall notice earlier in the year. I believe it was sometime in March 2013. The recall was about an air bag system occupant restraint control (orc). Again, I received this recall notice in October 2013. I have called the Jeep dealer, [xxx] located on West market street in pottsville pa 17901 three times about this and have been told each time that the part is backordered and they will call me when the part comes in. The last call I made to them was on December 5, 2013 and was still told it was on backorder. When will this part be available as my airbag warning light has been turning on & off at different times over the last year? I want to get this fixed and wanted to know why this part is taking so long to be available. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
