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.

There was a recall many years ago in germany on the starter, also have a letter from the Chrysler shop the part get replaced on warranty that was many years ago, there never had the part to replace it. Now I am in the states, in Washington, and the recall part failed me. Second: My headlight have a film haze, there is no way to clean it take it apart or anything. We went to used auto part stores every last one has the same problem. I cant see at night, and can cost me an extent. That should be a recall. A new light would cost $ $270 plus tax per light. It is on both lights. I am disappointed with the Chrysler. I also just read on your web there many other recalls I never knew about it. What can you do for me.

98 Plymouth Voyager VIN #[xxx] please be advised that my acrylic head lamps have become pitted via normal driving. I believe this causes loss of visibility during nighttime operation. Visibility may be lowered by more than 50%. I think this may be a common situation in vehicles nationally. Please advise me on the proper steps to rectify.
