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.

Escalade 8-cyl

  • 48,000 miles


After entering the alley I pushed the garage door button. As I was turning onto the driveway pavement from the gravel alley the truck slowed and became hard to steer (like when the power steering pump goes out). Almost simultaneously there was a loud pop and the airbag deployed. When I realized what just happened I put the truck in park, turned the key to off and got out in a hurry. I thought the truck was on fire as there was a burning smell and smoke sputtered for quite awhile. As yet I do not know what caused the airbag to deploy.
