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 my local Kentucky dealer states they have no idea when my 6 year old 335 will be fixed and it may take another two years.. it's like driving an air bag time bomb. They also state Kentucky is very low on the priority list since they don't sell as many cars. Unacceptable!

Takata recall. I was involved in a minor, slow speed accident where my vehicle rear-ended the vehicle in front. The airbags deployed with such force that both front passenger windows were blown out and the windshield cracked. I suffered partial hearing loss as a result. Vehicle was moving at approximately 15-20 mph on a highway at the time.

Driving from work on a snowing day, going about 25 to 35. The rear of the car started going to the other side of lane. I traded to get control but it was to late. I hit a guard rail and the air bags never came out.

I am 5'2", fat and wanted either an on/switch for my front driver's airbag, or I was going to apply under your guidelines to have the driver's airbag disconnected. BMW apparently can do neither since their airbag is tied into its electrical system. I have gotten nothing but a run around regarding what for me is a safety issue. I don't want to be decapitated in the event of a crash. Do you have any enforcement authority over this that would make BMW comply with your requirements?
