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 contact stated the front passenger seat airbag sensor intermittently failed to activate. The vehicle was seen by a dealer, but was unable to alter the weight requirement to activate the sensor. The airbag was inactive up to 100 pounds. However, the passenger weighed 105 pounds, and the airbag sensor light indicated inactive. The manufacturer was consulted, but determined the airbag sensor was designed to activate at the specified weight. The contact felt that if a person who was 105 lbs could driver a vehicle safely with air bag, why was it unsafe to sit in a passenger seat. Didn't buy a vehicle so that he at 105 lbs would have to sit in the rear seat to be safe.
