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 bought the car used after I've been hit in the back from somebody and I no longer had my Subaru or the money to buy another Subaru so I was stuck buying this car in the meantime and the windows work but only for a little bit 6 hours after I bought the car the engine light turned on course it didn't have any transmission fluid so I put some in but one window dropped had to pull it out and now the driver door does completely will not roll up or rolled down and then I see that they have done some work to it because I didn't notice when I bought it that the door has power they have opened it another issue is that I washed my car when I call the person that bought it was a little small dealership I stated that I washed the car he stated to me to me "you washed the car?" I said yes I didn't ask any questions however the next day the front left headlight went out and it cost me $15 so not sure what else I can do it appears that there was a recall there is a recall on the fuel tanker what not they can catch fire I would like the recall to be repaired also I should have noticed that the car occasionally randomly feel like it's fishtailing while I'm driving I was struck by a vehicle on the freeway while I was walking after my Jeep Grand Cherokee that I had prior to my Subaru completely died on the middle of the freeway I began to walk to the call box when I was struck by a car so I have to have a safe car I am a single mother and grandmother thank you for your attention in this matter.

I was approaching the onramp, & as I turned on I heard a noise. Thinking I had a flat I immediately pulled off to check my tires upon rounding the rear of my vehicle I saw liquid on the ground upon backing up a step I could see it was my gas tank with the broken brackets. I thank god there were no sparks & that I was not yet @ speed on the interstate. I was terrified as to how close to death I possibly was. Then I find out here that it had happened 1 other time (that's reported here) but not to the manufacturer. Now I'm out of my vehicle while being repaired and out of work till it's fixed. This should never have to come out of my pocket but will because of negligence. I only wish I had though to take pictures before it was loaded & towed to the garage.

I just purchased the car and found that the car has an outstanding recall. It is Chrysler recall #N46 or NHTSA #13V-252. Which is related to potential fire from rear end collision. I just called Jeep Chrysler at 5130 nesconsett hwy, port jefferson station, NY 11776. They indicated to me that there is a 6 month waiting period in order to get the car in to fix the recalled item. I think that is an unreasonable amount of time to have to wait to fix this potentially disastrous issue. Is this ok? I would like to be able to get this done much sooner as I fear for my family's safety.

Chrysler sent me a letter informing me of recall N46. I am seeking reimbursement for an oem hitch that I had installed prior to the recall. I have spoken to Chrysler many times over the last 2 years and followed their instructions for inspection and submission of documentation for the oem hitch. I have a case # from Chrysler. Despite repeated promises to call me and /or process the refund, I have had no contact from Chrysler. My latest attempt to contact them was 1/20/15, at which point I was told I would be contacted within a week. What do I have to do to get the refund?
