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 owns a 2005 Cadillac Cts. While the vehicle was parked the trunk lid closed on its own when the contact was standing underneath it. The contact stated that it hit her severely on the head and lost consciousness. She began experiencing forgetfulness and depression after the incident. She claimed she has no history of headaches, at the most maybe one or two a year. Now the headaches are constant. The contact went to the doctor and he stated that she suffered a concussion.
