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.

The airbag or SRS(supplemental restraint system) light is on my 2004 Acura Rl when buying the car I don't notice the light was on until I drove the car off the lot and bill of sales was final and the dealership was close since I brought the car right before closing time.

My wife was entering a bend in the road and came upon a car stopped in her lane, with no brakes lights!!! she attempted to swerve to the shoulder but it was too late. She impacted the car in the rear, slightly offset to the right (passenger) side. The front of her car impacted slightly offset to the left (driver's) side. She braced for impact with her left hand on the wheel. The passenger side airbag (empty seat!) deployed but the driver's airbag did not!! the full force of the impact was absorbed by her hand, shattering her wrist. She needs surgery to piece it back together and the surgeon estimates a 12-18 month recovery time. She's a professional driver with ~20 years experience and drives a school bus for a living. No way should her airbag not have deployed. Her career and our financial well being is in serious jeopardy because of the severity of her injury. I've never sued anyone in my life and don't care for the practice, but I don't see how I can't, this is just not right.
