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.

On 12/21/06, I was driving on a two-lane road when another driver lost control of his truck, his backend slid off the road and when the back tires gained traction, it shot his truck across his lane and into the side of my car with the front of his truck. His truck ended up damaging my car down the entire driver side (front to rear). My side impact air bags never deployed. My side mirror came through my window and struck me in the arm with glass impacting my left ear, eye and cheek as well as my mouth. The collision center cannot explain why the air bag never deployed. The car is still at the collision center with $10,000 worth of damage.

While driving on a street the consumer noticed a small pothole and the consumer could not remember if she struck the pothole or not. Instantly, the front passenger's air bag as well as the side/curtain passenger's airbag partially deployed. The consumer was on her way to the dealer when this occurred to trade in on a new vehicle and decided to journey to the dealership with the airbags partially deployed. The consumer inspected the vehicle, no visible damage or impact was noticed. The dealer has made no corrections. The dealer was awaiting an inspection from a BMW representative. This was the first and only incident with the airbags deploying.
