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 air bag was pushing through the dashboard on the consumers 1998 Buick Regal. She noticed this on 7-21-05. She took it in on the 22nd and they said the clip was broken. The dealer said they could glue it down but then it might not work in the event of an accident. They said that right now, if anyone was riding in the passenger seat, it might kill them and it would break the window. She is not driving the vehicle. She has not talked to General Motors. There is no air bag light on in the vehicle. She has not wrecked the car. She has only had the car about 6 months and it was not like that at a all when she bought it.
