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.

"takata recall" (2 recalls). Received the recall notice. On the 2nd paragraph it states that this condition could cause serious injury or death. It doesn't get much worse then death. However, we still have to operate these vehicles knowing that it's a risk to our health and safety. NHTSA should be ashamed of themselves. I called Chrysler and spoke to a rep. I told him my concern and he explained that parts may not be available until early 2017. I told him this call was to inform him of my concern and that god forbid something happens that I would own Chrysler and will file a suit against NHTSA. Allowing drivers to operate vehicles with known safety defects is a crime. I inform you today basically notifying you that I'm on record and that my attorney has been directed to do the same.

2010 Jeep jk - while driving, particularly at low speeds the airbag warning light is constantly flashing or, going on, then off, then on, then off, etc. Each time with the sound and warning light. At higher speeds, it mostly stays in warning mode but if the steering wheel is turned at all, it will start to flash. Apparently there are recalls on the RHD Jeep jk and several other 2007 - 2010 model years. I believe there are several more vehicles involved than what they are claiming and mine should be one of them. I am worried the airbag may not work when it needs to.

Symptom was air bag light slowly flashing, specifically while driving. Some other symptoms from others online specify while turning. Diagnosis is bad clock spring with repairs necessary. This has been a documented issue that caused extended warranty in past years' models of Jeep Wrangler (2007) and caused a Chrysler ordered letter to customers, but it is yet uncovered in other years, although there is documentation online of this issue being seen in future years' models (including my 2010 model).

While driving the air bag light comes on and goes off multiple times. After diagnosis I found out that the clock spring is at fault and this is a common issue. Why hasn't there been a recall" there is a recall for the right hand drive Wrangler but no the left hand drive. Why is this" this is a safety issue that I think needs to be addressed asap.
