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.

My complaint is that of the air bags in this vehicle. On Saturday October 15, 2016 I was rear ended by another vehicle and forced into a telephone pole stopping me in my tracks. Through the rear impact with the vehicle striking me and the front colision with the telephone pole the air bag system in the vehicle did not deploy.

I had taken my car into a Jeep dealership in July of 2015 to get a recall for the airbags fixed. They told me that they did not have the parts necessary to fix it but that they would contact me when the parts became available. First of all I never heard back from them, I still haven't even to this day but I did receive an official notice for the recall in the mail. On April 3, 2016 I was involved in a head on collision which ended with me in the hospital with severe trauma to my spine and my car totaled. In this accident my airbags failed to deploy even though several sensors were hit in this accident. I'm very lucky that I am still actually alive but I am extremely distraught over the fact that I could have avoided injuries if my airbags had deployed. Someone needs to make this right. Attached is an image of what my car looked like following the accident.

I just received a call from Jeep that an outstanding recall is still on my vehicle and looking back some months ago, I brought my car into a dealer to have all of the recalls fixed and they said they need to order a part for one of the recalls. I never received a call back stating that the part was ready to be installed. Had it not been for this current call from Jeep I would have forgotten all about it. I just don't have time to keep bringing this car in and waiting for parts to be installed on it.

Both airbags on 2003 Jeep Liberty deployed for no reason. There was no accident. I was pulling out of the driveway. There were no passengers in the vehicle, only the driver. Jeep has denied responsibility for this claim indicating that there was ample time to have the recall repaired. However, I did not receive any recall notices. Jeep had and continues to have the wrong address on file. My address upon moving is promptly changed, yet Jeep continues to have the wrong address on file.

I brought our Jeep to the brookdale Chrysler Jeep for a occupant restrain module recall. Upon picking up the vehicle we noticed the seat belt light on, so I informed the service manager. They where nonchalant about it. They suggested my wife had something on the seat which she did not. The soluntion was for me to pay to have it taken out and another installed. We asked about a loaner vehicle and he stated we had to rent onespite government requests that they provide recall customers with a free loaner. I now have a air bag light on which was not there before they installed the ocuupant restraint module. This is a directly related part and brookdale Chrysler is leaving us hanging. No loaners car signs any where in sight (violation)
