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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The company says that there is a recall but there is no remedy available. How can I drive a car that doesn't have safe seatbelts or airbags?

Received a recall notice on 11/15/16. Repair shop where car was purchased advised they are unable to assist. Contacted thefca recall center for the manufacturer, who advised that they are unable to repair for 90 days pending their determination of repair process for all affected vehicles. 3 months is not a reasonable amount of time to repair safety features on a vehicle that my 17 year old daughter is driving. Company should fix timely or pay for rental or provide another vehicle to drive until they can repair it. These known defects in primary safety features and inefficiencies to repair are unacceptable and puts lives in jeopardy. Safety features could fail and people killed by the time these issues are fixed. The secretary should impose immediate remedy requirements.

"takata recall" I believe my son died in a crash caused by a faulty takata airbag. My son hit a tree while seat belted in and had no bodily injuries except for a scratch on his leg. I believe that the side air deployed sending a sharp metal object under his left arm severing his artery, which caused him to bleed out and died. There was no other cause for his artery to be severed, except for the airbag causing a piece of metal to sever his artery.

  • 2,800 miles
We were driving North and came upon an intersection where we put our turn signal on, and slowed down and stopped, about to turn West. The light turned red, and we slowly drove West onto the crossing street. Another vehicle that was driving South proceeded through the red light, at about 45 mph, and hit the 2014 Jeep Patriot broadside, passenger side. The Jeep was pushed and spun 90 degrees from the impact of the collision, we were tossed around violently in our seats, with the passenger obtaining contusions and abrasions to her arm closest to the impact site. She had also banged her head against the window and strained her neck from the impact, on the passengers side of the Jeep. And finally, had strained the muscles in her lower back from getting thrust at the direction of the impact site. The driver had suffered an impact abrasion to his left arm, leaving an imprint of the seat belt material into his skin. He had also suffered muscle strains and lower back strains from the force of the impact. Again, while being hit from a vehicle going 45 mph, and leaving damage that had literally started to fold the vehicle at the midpoint, and collapsed the wheel and axle, not a single airbag had deployed in this vehicle. If the vehicle that had collided with this Jeep had been driving near 65 mph, death would have been almost certain...updated 10/06/14 updated 3/25/2015
