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.

Takata recall - airbags. Received a notice in April 2016 from Acura that there had been a recall on airbags for my auto due to possible injuries including fatality should they implode. The notice advised I would be notified this summer when parts were available. I have yet to be notified and the safercar.gov website indicates a remedy is still not yet available as of 8.9.16 for my vehicle. So basically I have had to knowingly drive around in death trap for the last 4 months with my family praying what is suppose to help save our lives doesn't end up killing us should we be involved in an accident before the airbag and auto manufacturers get their act together and correct this.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2011 Acura TL. While driving approximately 27 mph, another vehicle ran a stop sign and crashed into the front passenger side of the contact's vehicle. The front air bags deployed. The inflator ruptured and metal fragments passed through the air bag and struck the contact. The contact sustained injuries to the face, neck, chest, hands, and spine. The contact required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a body shop where it was not diagnosed nor repaired. The contact later received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V061000 (air bags). The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 32,000.

Takata recall- took car in for battery replacement. Informed of recall. Told replacement couldn't take place until sometime in summer. Offered a car as temporary replacement. It was indicated car wouldn't be of quality of mine, would be of enterprise rental quality. I thought this was unreasonable considering the period of time. I declined the offer. Was told to sign a letter of refusal. Wasn't told decline was an option (don't know if it was). Required my signature on the declination. Later I realized that was most likely a ploy to escape litigation against Acura and/or takata in the event of an accident: Offering an undesirable option and leaving an owner with reduced grounds to take legal action if he should decline. Should this be allowed?
