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 have received notices from Chrysler regarding my Jeep Wrangler recall N28/NHTSA 13V-234. I have contacted Chrysler on numerous occasions and ordered the replacement part on Feb 14, 2014. As of this morning it was still not available and the dealer told me directly that they are only allowed to order 1 part every 2 weeks and that there were about 50 people waiting. If this is the case and my safety is in jeopardy I'm curious as to how serious Chrysler is taking this if at this point 50 people have to wait about 2 years to have this resolved? please let me know.
