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.

We own a 2004 Jeep Liberty that we purchased used in 2004 from a Jeep dealer. This vehicle has a ball-joint recall. We never received a contact from Jeep regarding this recall. I contacted the local Jeep dealer on November 13 2006 and asked to be put on the list. I did not feel that the gentleman that took down our information really cared and it concerned me because as of today we had received no contact back from Jeep. I called Jeep and was told that our information had not been taken down and I was told that we would be added to the list. Per the instructions in the recall your site is listed on the web to go to if you feel that Jeep is not doing their job properly regarding this recall and with what I have experienced I do believe that they are in fact not handling this properly.
