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.

The contact owned a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. The contact stated that the driver inserted the key into the ignition and turned it into the accessory position when the air bags deployed. The driver sustained injuries to the arms, chest and wrist. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that there was water intrusion, which could have caused the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, and determined that it was not mechanical. The insurance company decided that the failure was mechanical, and classified the vehicle as being destroyed. The approximate failure mileage was 63,800.

Chrysler designed the power distribution block cover to hold water and retain moisture. This causes the connections to corrode and fail leading to failure of critical, electrically-operated, safety systems including the airbag safety restraint system and the anti-lock braking system. Chrysler has been aware of the error and redesigned the power distribution box. However, they did not recall and offer to replace the failed component.

The steering wheel clock spring failed, which caused my airbag, horn, and cruise control to become inoperative. This is a known problem and a recall has been issued. However, my VIN number was not on the list to receive the free replacement. The dealer wants me to pay $300 to fix a known safety defect.

We own a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. We had received a recall notice regarding the front air bag (clockspring assembly). This notice was for vehicles with 70,000 miles or less (free repair). Our vehicle has 75,000+ miles and yesterday our air bag light is staying on... I do not think that it is responsibile for diamler Chrysler to set milage limits for repairs. We have a large family and us our van alot... diamler Chrysler should not be aloud to set milage limits. Because of this decision, I will not purchase another diamler Chrysler product. Thank you.
