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.

2006 Acura TL's side airbags inadvertently deployed. There was no accident and the air bags deployed when I was going 20mph on a local manhattan street (56th between 5th and madison avenues). There was a pothole and the airbag deployed when I drove slightly over it. There's no exterior damage to the car and the tires are perfectly fine.

: the contact stated while driving 35 mph on a rural road after a right turn, the front wheel hit a pot hole, the driver side air bag deployed and the seat belt became stocked. The vehicle remained inoperable due to a vehicle safety feature. No warning light were illuminated prior the incident. A police report was taken. The vehicle was inspected by the dealership who determined the pot hole impact deployed the side air bag and also stocked the seat belt buckle. The whole incident was determined as an accident by the dealership as well by the manufacturer representative in puerto rico. The consumer protection Agency and the insurance company also determined the incident as an accident. The contact expressed concern because the air bag deployment was not a consequence of body impact.
