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.

I dont have $2000 to replace a dash that I caused no part in the failure of. If my airbag deploys on its on while I am driving and I have an accident, there will be a lawsuit.

As my car sat in a parking garage, not being driven, my dashboard developed two huge and deep cracks right on top of where my passenger airbag is. I called Acura customer service and was told that this is not a safety issue and since there is no recall anywhere on my vehicle that I would have to cover the entire cost of replacement. I do believe this is a safety concern considering the cracks are right on top of my airbag and do not know how this could affect the possible deployment of the airbags if needed.
