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.

Involved in a horrific auto accident with other vehicle. Hit in front passenger & front part of vehicle (by radiator area) at high speed. Est.speed approx. 45-55 mph with no skid marks, other vehicle stopped when it hit us. New GM/Escalade-SUV/"04-with 11,000 miles, bought new declared total loss, with apparent serious frame damage/bent 12 in. And found stress crk. Should give an idea high speed other vehicle traveling. 8-10 seconds from impact, onstar came on automatically, they recd. Emergency message via satellite, vehicle had been in a serious mva and air bags deployed. We didn't call onstar they called us. Next day we called asked how they knew we were accident. Told us depending on the severity, they get certain signals, which ours had advised of seriousness & airbag deployment. Unbelievably, none of our 4 airbags deployed. We & hundreds of our friends are in total disbelief when you see the condition veihicle was left in & that 4 air bags didn't deploy. We were injured but by grace of god injuries were not life threatening. Head, upperandlowerback, neck, legs, shoulder, hipsand arms extremley sore. Has been 33 days since the accident and am still feeling pains & serious headaches but alive. Have decided to become advocates and report accident/incident to possibly safe a person(s) life and make General Motors aware that they have a possible defect in their air bags, leading to massive recall and possibly a class action law suit if not fixed. This is a very serious matter. Anytime anyone is hit at rate of speed that we were, to leave brand new SUV Escalade a total loss/ 12 in. Bent frame & stress crack & 4 air bags not deploy - leads us to believe of a serious problem and a serious one for GM/Cadillac. Call for further details (956) 533-0811 (956)358-5272. Thank you & god bless.
