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 a Jeep Liberty with 40,000 miles on it that has safety issues. We bought the car new as a small SUV for our family and it has been a complete piece of junk. The anniversary package that we bought is a joke. The fake leather seat have completely deteriorated which we overlooked but now the car is having safety issues. The air bag system is a joke and the failed module is no longer covered under the manufacturers warranty nor the extended warranty that the stealership sold to us. I will never ever purchase another Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep product as they are very unreliable vehicles as well as my experiences with 4 different dealerships has been beyond horrible. They even lied to us about changing our oil in the car and offered a free oil change to compensate for the lie. What a joke they did not even change our oil and said they did. I have been working with cars for 20 years so I know a few tricks of the trade and I always do things to be assured that the said work is being performed. I can not believe that a car with 40,000 miles on it needs a new module that is recalled for the same year as my Jeep but mine is not included in the recall, how horrible is that. I will never say anything good about these cars nor will I ever refer anyone I know to purchase such a piece of crap.

So yesterday after work I get in my car and start it, and I noticed my airbag light came on. I figured maybe the sensor was triggered by the hot weather but that still didn't make sense. So I look up what I should do in the manual and it says take it to the dealer (they were closed). The next day, I thought surely the code would clear and all would be well. To my surprise my light was still on. I take my car to the dealership to get checked out (mind you, I have 2 warranties on this car) and I just know it will be covered. Wrong! I was shocked and dismayed to find out that my airbag has 2 problems, the seat belt sensor has blown out and the the airbag module is blown out (meaning it will not deploy if I get in an accident). On top of all this, neither of these problems are covered by my $4,000 warranty and will cost me $910 before taxes. Seriously"?" I shouldn't have to pay a dime extra for what I was under the impression of already purchasing: A safe vehicle. This is absolutely unacceptable. Please do something about this soon. Someone could die.

I was driving about 40 mph. There was a red light and some preceding cars were stopped and others were slowing down. The brakes failed to respond even after stomping on it a of couple times. The brakes only depressed down a little bit but not fully (seemed like depressing brake pedal when ignition is turned off). The vehicle slowed down to about 30 mph, but did not come to a complete stop and crashed into the rear end of vehicle in front. Airbag deployed and caused minor cuts and bruises to the face.
