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.

Takata recall lewis Chrysler/Jeep of fayetteville, Arkansas returned the Jeep to me with no receipt and said the work was done. The Jeep was scheduled at 9am on Feb.23.. at 12:30pm they called and said it had not been started yet. At 1:30 they called saying it was done. The gave me the key and that was it. I went home and looked at my Toyota receipt for a similar recall. It was very detailed. I returned the next morning and asked for a receipt. They gave me one with no details. I showed the Toyota receipt and asked for the same information. First they said that Chrysler/Jeep never gives detailed receipts. After I insisted, 10 minutes passed while they were back in the office. They came out and said the work had not been done because a special part was needed that they did not have. They had sent me home thinking the work had been completed. If I had not returned for the receipt I would have never known the difference. Then and only then did the manager apologize and tried to blame the technician for not telling him. It was suspicious from the start, with no receipt issued and going from not even in the garage yet to being done in under an hour.

This is a complaint about fca's recall implementation. Fca simply does not get parts out to dealers to get the repairs done. I have been wanting to get the recall work completed on the car but the dealers do not have any parts to do the repairs. All the notices do not matter if the manufacturers do not get parts out to complete repairs. Fine them if they don't get parts out to do the repairs!!!!
