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 Buick Rendezvous was struck in the right front corner yet the air bags never deployed.** answer required***. the consumer was given several reasons why the air bag did not deploy. One was that the vehicle wasn't traveling fast enough, the second was that the sensor was not activated on impact and the third one was that there may have been some type of air bag defect. The vehicle was deemed totaled by the consumer's insurance company.
