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.

2004 BMW X5 Owner Comments

While driving our 2004 BMW X5 a person ran a stop sign and hit me in the driver's side door, the impact was so hard my SUV was pushed into another lane and the front left tire was "blown out". the driver's side door had to be replaced due to structural damage but airbag never deployed. I have sustained a cervical and a thoracic spine injury (herniated discs) and continue to be under medical treatment for the past 10 months. In December I had to stop working as a result of the accident. Maybe if the airbag worked properly I would not have been so severly injured.
