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.

We have received recalls for S-43, and S-33 refrencing the air bag system. We received them in April and still have not been called in to have the repairs made. Several attempts to reach Chrysler via E-mail have only resulted in getting many adds to buy cars. I want this safety problem resolved immediatly.

Received a recall for the clock spring. The horn in our Wrangler stopped working had a mechanic diagnosis the problem as the clock spring. Jeep dealership said the part is on back order. Called Jeep and they stated to get the vehicle diagnosed by dealership and they can expedite the part called dealership back and they stated they would charge us to diagnose the problem and it would not help get the part. This vehicle is a safety concern and will not pass inspection so the vehicle can be licensed.

Check airbag light coming on and beeping intermittently when vehicle was in motion. Took Jeep to dealership, was advised clockspring (in steering column) was faulty with squib 1 circuit open. Had to pay out of pocket for all repairs, even though Jeep has a current recall on this issue (S33 clockspring) for same model year and others. No resolution when speaking with Jeep customer care who claimed my VIN was not part of the current recall for the exact same problem.
