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 have received 3 of the same recall notices (N46 / NHTSA 13V-252) from Chrysler dating back to 3/2014. I have followed the notices directions by contacting two of my local dealers to obtain parts and service. Each time I call (usually every 2 weeks), I am told that parts are not available yet and to keep checking back. I believe that this resolution is taking more than a "reasonable amount of time" as it is now almost October. I am trying to be patient, but if this defect was important enough to trigger a recall, it's important enough for Chrysler to make these parts available asap. My family's safety is very important to me and I feel like Chrysler is abandoning their customers and dealers.

Safety recall on vehicle, received notice to repair, made appointment with ellis Jeep, canoga park, ca. When I arrived at ellis Jeep they did not have the part required and made many excuses excluding why they did not notify by phone they did not have the part and to reschedule. I took my ride away and returned home. I then called van nuys Jeep and told them the problem, the service manager was very kind and asked if I could bring the Jeep to them and he would squeeze it in that day. I drove over to that dealership and the manager found a way to deal with the repair within two hours. Praise is deserved by van nuys Jeep and disgrace upon ellis Jeep.

Received notice on N46 recall that hitch was available to install to take care of gas tank issue. Called local dealer lochmandy motors of elkhart Indiana to set up date and time. I was told it was a class 2 hitch with a 2" receiver. I said I was removing my old hitch that was getting rusty. He said he had to order part and I will have to make the appointment when it came in. It came in and I made the appointment for install and again questioned the rating and received the same answer. I stopped in 3 days before my appointment to take a look at the hitch and I was shown the hitch and was told it is not meant to be used to tow. I questioned this and was told he knows I tow and and long as I do not try to tow as big as a house like some people do, then I should be fine. I was again told it was a class 2 and we both mentioned we see the 2" receiver. On day of install I called Chrysler main office directly to find out the ratings and they said "no" it not meant to be used to tow and it is just structural. She said the dealer knows this and they have a tag they place on the hitch after install stating this and I must sign off on this. At the time I looked at the hitch at the dealer before install he said there is no tag and 1 will placed on it after install. I called lochmandy motors right back and told them to remove it from my Jeep. The public and NHTSA are being mislead by Chrysler and the dealer and some one is going to get hurt trying to tow with this unit. How many people with disregard the label or have it removed and then the next owner pays the price. Chrysler knows this will happen. I will again have to spend money for an aftermarket part to fix a Chrysler fatal death issue.

My Jeep Liberty is included in the massive Jeep recall of vehicles that may experience a fire in the event of a rear end collision. I would like to know how much longer I have to wait to receive the replacement equipment, or do I need to leave my family with instructions to file a lawsuit in the event that I am involved in an accident and burned to death in my car.

I am a fleet manager with the Colorado department of transportation. We possess several of these recalled vehicles. The recall states that the fuel tank is vulnerable to fuel leakage in the event of a rear end collision. Chrysler's fix is to install a trailer hitch to serve as additional structural reinforcement. I received three recall notices some months ago. Those notices stated that at that time, Chrysler did not have sufficient parts to effect the repairs, but that they would contact us when the parts were in stock. We heard nothing from Chrysler, when I received notices for 15 more vehicles. I contacted cherry creek Dodge and was told that they had 5 hitches in stock. When my staff dropped off a vehicle for repair, they were told we would have to take them to Colorado Chrysler going forward. I called Colorado Chrysler to see if they had parts. I was told they did not, and they did not expect to see any until the end of October. They said they were not permitted to order any, and that they were limited to an automatic replenishment of 5 hitches per month. Needless to say, this is ridiculous. These vehicles have a safety issue, and the Chrysler dealers are dragging their feet on repairing them. Meanwhile, I have employees driving unsafe vehicles. I suspect that since the newest vehicles affected by this recall are 7 years old, they are being cynical and betting that most of these vehicles will be off the road soon, so if they can drag out the process it will save them money. This is completely unacceptable!

I am complaining because like 2 years ago a recall was issued for my Jeep Liberty 2005, due to design defect of placing the fuel tank at the end of the vehicle. Supposed to be addressed by addition of a trailer hitch. I have heard nothing further in these 2 years. No notice of recall, no notice of how to get it worked on. How long can this be ignored by Chrysler? do they have any intention of abiding by the decision.
