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 contact stated while the vehicle was immobile on a private winter resort road, it was rammed by the vehicle coming behind and pushed him forward hitting the vehicle in front. There were no warning lights illuminated prior to the accident. The front driver air bag did not deploy nor did the seat belt restrain the contact. The security personnel of the resort was present but the police and fire department were not contacted. The vehicle remained inoperable. The contact was very concerned because the vehicle was recently serviced at the dealership without any problem. The dealership and the manufacturer were not contacted. The vehicle was totaled.
