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.

I got a recall notice, took the car in several months ago. I took my car in for inspection to dealer (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep) and they confirmed recall and said they would have to order the part. Dealer now, two months later tells me the manufacturer is only releasing 1 part a week for recall correction. This seems to be a poor way of repairing recalls as the risk continues.. does Chrysler take these things seriously?

I took my vehicle in for recall on the NHTSA campaign id no. 13V234000 was told parts had to be ordered. Today (3 months later) I was notified that it will be several more months because the manufacturer is only allowing the dealership to order 1 part every 10 days and I'm still down on the list. I find this totally unacceptable. After 3 months I still need to wait several months to have a recall completed?

On Friday March 14, 2014 I was driving with my 1 year old daughter on harmony church road (route 704) on my way to my son's elementary school. My daughter was in a car seat in the back seat, directly behind the passenger seat. While en route, my 2013 Jeep Wrangler unlimited hit drifted to the shoulder of the road and the passenger side front tire was pulled into soft mud. I lost control of the vehicle. My vehicle was pulled to the right shoulder of the road and I went off the road. The vehicle struck a tree and various bushes. The loudoun county sheriff"S department and loudoun county fire and rescue responded to the scene. My husband and I recently put larger tires and rims on the Jeep and a 3? lift kit. My husband commented that with the larger tires and the raised height, the Jeep was more difficult to control on the road and I had noticed the vehicle visibly ?wander? on the road when I had followed my husband while he was driving the Jeep. The sheriff?S department called my husband at home and he responded to the accident scene and took our daughter. I sustained injures in the collision, but my daughter was unharmed. The Jeep"S airbags failed to deploy and I sustained a fractured nose, facial lacerations, facial contusions and a contusion to my sternum. I was taken by ambulance to leesburg hospital at 224 cornwall street.
