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.

I received my first recall notice for the defective transmission oil cooler tube over six months ago and contacted Jeep of paramus New Jersey to schedule the replacement parts to be installed. I was told the replacement parts are on back order and I would receive a call when they come in. I have called every month for over six months to obtain an update on these parts. In the meantime, I have received another recall notice. I called Jeep paramus today to check the status of the parts and was told that I have to wait at least another three months. In the recall letter, it clearly states that should the defected tube leak, it can cause major damage and possibly a crash. This is very terrifying and disturbing to me that if this part can cause death, why is the company not taking this matter seriously. I drive my car every single day for work and personal use. This is absolutely unacceptable and I would like immediate action to be taken on this matter. Please advise me of my rights and what actions that I can take to rectify this matter immediately. I thank you in advance for your time and patience in this matter. I await your prompt response. Have a great day.

We have contacted parkway Ford Lincoln in dover, Ohio several times regarding the recall on our Jeep Wrangler for the transmission oil cooler tube. They looked at it on 11/7/2013 and said it needs replaced and they would call us when they got one. I have received 2 more notices and called them after each notice and they still say they do not have it. I am concerned with the safety of my Jeep since it needs replaced and they just keep putting me off and saying they cannot get the part. They are saying that they are only able to order 1 every 2 weeks but even if that is the case, this has been going on now for 6 months. I don't know what else I can do to remedy the situation.

I received first recall notice (notification code N28) in June 2013. Contacted dealer and was put on "wait list" for part. I have received 2 more recall notices. Calls to dealer result in being told that Chrysler is not supplying enough parts for the repair and my wait will be another 6 months minimum ( as of May 2014 ). calls to another dealer confirms that they received 2-3 parts per month for repair resulting in wait list of months.
