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 Jeep dealer in macomb, il, cross Jeep, was unable to remedy safety recall F23 - lower ball joints within a reasonable amount of time. I have waited almost 5 months for cross Jeep to replace the lower ball joints on my 2005 Jeep Liberty and have attempted no less than 4 follow ups without any success. I have been promised return phone calls about the status of my vehicle being fixed, and I have yet to receive one of these return phone calls from the dealership. I just got off the phone with cavanaugh Jeep in monmouth, il, and I already have an appointment for next Tuesday to have the recall fixed.

Safety recall F23-lower ball joints. Dealer is allotted insufficient number of parts per week and consumer is put on waiting list since Jan. 1st,2007. Ball joint separation can result in loss of steering and could cause a crash without prior warning. The safety of not only myself but my family as well including small grandchildren.
