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.

Takata recall (S43 / NHTSA 16V-352): I have been waiting several months for a replacement passenger side air bag inflator replacement and get no answers other than no parts are available. What action is the NHTSA taking against Chrysler/Jeep/mopar and takata on this" this is ridiculous that I am told that I should not have a passenger as this thing can fail. Is there any legal recourse than can be taken" bradley eleeson 7708 w. 67th St. Sioux falls, sd 57106

Takata recall I am filing a complaint because it is appalling that such a dangerous situation created by the failure of airbags and involving a recall actually has no solution and has no timeline for when a solution will be available, this is incredibly serious and important, yet there is no solution. You have got to be kidding. My Jeep Wrangler unlimited is part of this enormous, ineffective recall, and my family and I ride in this vehicle on a regular basis. This is absolutely unacceptable, and the manufacturers are clearly and terribly failing their responsibility to consumers.

Vehicle not being repaired in a reasonable manner: Received recall notice S43 and S33. I called sunland park Dodge, el paso, tx for service. Was informed that parts not available and to call back in approximately 3 weeks. I called approximately 4 weeks later to same facility and was transferred to service department. A representative informed me that one of the recalled parts was not available. I asked if I could order the part and schedule a service appointment. Request was denied. The representative proceeded to try and have me call the national Dodge parts dept to inquire when the part would be in. I told him that I would not be willing to spend my personal time (an expense) chasing down a part that he should be able to order. I then asked if he would make that call and get that information to me. He refused to help me and was attempting to end the call. Then I asked to speak with his manger. Around 20 minutes later someone who was not his manager proceeded to give false information saying that they could replace one of the parts and ┐inspect┐ the other recalled part to see if it needs to be replaced. I informed the unidentified woman that, considering the questionable customer service, I would no longer feel safe trusting their dealership to make repairs to my vehicle. Service incomplete after approximately 7 weeks. Pursuing service at alternate dealership.

On my 09 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) dashboard, the airbag light and chime come on and off during my daily comute an indication that there is something malfunctioning or interfering with the vehicles aibags. This has been a recurring issue and concern for many 2008 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) owners, including myself, and has been shown time and time again to be caused by a faulty clockspring within the vehicle's steering wheel. This faulty clockspring is the culprit for potential airbag failure in the 2008 Jeep Wrangler (lhd) during an accident or premature deployment when simply driving around. Daimler Chrysler has refused to address the safety concern of their faulty clockspring that can cause failure of the vehicle's airbags from properly deploying. At first my horn stop working (also caused by a faulty clockspring) and didn't think much of it, but I had to look into this matter a little deeper when my airbag light came on.

The vehicle's airbag light illuminates when the steering wheel is turning. The clock spring is defective. There has been a recall on this part and I am not sure why my VIN number is not being chosen for the recall when it has the same symptoms as all the vehicles that are recalled. I am nervous to wait for it to possibly get recalled in case I am in an accident.

The airbag light on the dash comes on and stays on. When turning the wheel sharply, the light goes off and then comes back on again when coming out of the turn. The vehicle was taken in for service and I was told the clock spring was bad and needed to be replaced. My understanding is that similar Jeep have been recalled for this and that the investigation has expanded to include my model and year as well. Attached is the estimate from the dealer showing the need for repair.

My airbag light came on and my cruise control stopped working. I took the vehicle to the dealership and they stated it would be $500 to fix because it is not a recalled item. I have been waiting patiently for the recall because many other Jeep Wrangler owners are having the same issues. My vehicle was stationary. One day I simply went to start the Jeep and the light came on. I was headed to work and always use my cruise control when I am on the highway, but it would not work.

Air bag light remains on, therefore the air bag may not deploy as intended in an accident. This is a known problem with the 'clock spring' as Jeep is recalling certain model years and not others - Jeep needs to recall and fix this safety issue on all Jeep models, not just a select few.

A few weeks ago while making a left hand turn I heard a pop and then my airbag lamp (dash light) started coming on and dings when the car is started (very annoying)...I looked in the manual and it told me this meant there was a problem with the driver's air bag. I did searches on the internet and found that a lot of vehicles are being recalled for a know issue / recall for clock-spring assembly in the driver's airbag system that could cause it to malfunction and not deploy during a crash. I found a few sites that listed my make / model of Jeep as one of the recalls... but when I called the Chrysler / Jeep customer service & took it to the Chrysler / Jeep dealership to have it diagnosed- I was told my make / model was not included in the recall so I had to pay for it out of my own pocket ($499.17 to be exact - see attached invoice). Talk about a shock - I would have never guessed that it would be this expensive - but to be protected and safe in my vehicle it had to be done. I am hoping to also voice my concerns & hopefully protect other people and possibly prevent deaths of innocent people that are not aware of the problem so they can get the defective airbag clock-spring assemblies replaced. I also requesting that this incident be reported, investigated and hope to be reimbursed for this expense I pray that someone else does not have to spend the time, money or worry that I've had to go through in order to get this issue fixed... hopefully before it causes an injury or death!

Faulty clockspring wiring for airbag. Replaced for $500 this is a known defect for RHD models that has prompted a recall. After many complaints, the 2007 lhd model warranty appears to have been extended as well. However, I had the same issues with my 2009 lhd model (160,000 miles). This is a known defect that should be absorbed by the company and not the customer!
