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.

Not sure if this related to takata airbags. My wife was in bad rollover accident involving a 2009 Acura MDX on Nov 5, 2015. At 5:15 pm on 11/5, Thursday, it was dark and raining as she was heading East on us route 12 close to the arcelormittal usa office and slipped, veered off the road and SUV rolled over and cart wheeled and fell in a ditch. The SUV was upside down when I arrived after a first responder called me from the scene. Not sure why she veered off when she was on the left most lane. She suddenly crossed 2 lanes and shoulder and ended up in a ditch. She was not fatigued since it was less than 3 min since she left from the office and we have blue tooth handsfree in our 2009 Acura MDX tech. Not sure if the air bag went off falsely or if she had a tire burst. I know both front tires were flat when I saw it in the salvage yard. All she recalls is air bags going off - not sure if they deployed before or after she hit the ditch... there was no other vehicle involved.. an eerily similar incident in an 2009 Acura MDX very similar to what my wife encountered on Nov 5. I want the NHTSA to investigate this.the responding police department for the Nov 5 incident is the burnsharbor police department contact phone. 219-787-9412 file/case # 15-04322A thanks, arun balakrishnan 10009 ashwood lane munster in 46321 219 513 8647 home 219 801 8372 cell
