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.

Air bag light turned on. After restarting the car it will not turn off. I read a report about air bags deploying due to eletrical spikes and thought I should report my issue. My car was parked when it started and continued when I was driving.

Takata recall--took vehicle to dealer in regards to airbag recall. Was told "parts are unavailable to fix this issue", but it was "safe to drive" as long as the airbag indicator light did not remain on full time. On the way home from the dealer, the indicator did indeed come on & not go off. In researching this online, I see "parts will not be available until late 2016!" I have called Chrysler about being unable to drive my vehicle & was basically brushed off. The one person who was trying to help us, had us on hold so long calling around that their system hung up the phone. I can not sit on a car for a year, unable to drive it, having to rely on one vehicle for our family, and not have any recourse or compensation to offset our time & frustration.

I have attempted to submit my 2003 Jeep Liberty for recall repairs relating to recall N46 and R06 beginning more than a year ago to my two nearest Jeep dealerships; tate Jeep in frederick and century Jeep in mt. Airy, Maryland. When I inquire that I have received notices by mail instructing for recall repairs I am being ignored for service. Century Jeep placed me on a call-back list, but I was never contacted. When I called after 4-5 months I was told I am still on the waiting list. A year has gone by with no further contact. When I inquired of tate Jeep about recall repairs they will not respond back to me. I fought with century Jeep for about a year to have my airbag recall addressed. Frankly, I am tired of begging and pleading with my local Jeep dealerships to have recall work performed. I have been afraid every day I drive my Liberty of having the air bag explode in my face or my gas tank exploding from a rear end collision. Can you help prompt my dealerships to address these outstanding recalls. I continue to receive recall notices on a periodic basis informing me that my recalls have not been repaired, but the dealerships refuse to do anything. Century Jeep tells me that they do not have the recall repair parts in stock. They tell me that they only get a couple each month from Chrysler. How much longer do I have to drive this death trap? I appreciate any help you can provide me. Thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

This complaint is in regards to the following: The airbag system occupant restraint control (orc) module may experience a front airbag and/or seatbelt pretensioner inadvertent deployment. As of Nov 7, 2015 this repair has not been completed and I have not have any contact from the manufacturer. I am concerned for the safety of my 19 year old daughter who is the primary operator of this Jeep. The only information I have been able to find about the status of this repair from Chrysler Jeep indicates there is not yet a remedy available until 2016. The last recall notice I received was as of Feb 6, 2015 but I believe I received others dating back to 2014. The safercar.gov website currently shows the following: Recall status: Recall incomplete. Remedy not yet available.
