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.

Takata recall: Why hasn't this been resolved" the issue was identified in may, 2016!!! what are the Cadillac folks doing to answer this danger" this delay is unacceptable, and, should I, or anyone driving my car, become involved in an accident where additional damage(s) or harm occurs due to rupture of the airbag inflators, I will take all legal action necessary.

Escalade 8-cyl

  • 80,000 miles
After I left my girlfriend house I got on the interstate and started traveling to work. I was on interstate 59 South and 20 West for about 15 minutes. The conditions outside were cold and dry. I was traveling at 70 mph in far left lane on the road when I was approaching the avenue I exit my roof rail airbags deployed on me. When they deployed on me, the pressure from the airbags pushed against my head and through me against the center console in my Escalade but it was a good thing I was wearing a seat belt because the seat belt caught me and kept me from getting thrown out my seat. Also the seat belt caught me right under my neck causing a long scar under it. When the airbags deployed it also cause me to swerve left almost hitting the retainer wall that they have on the interstate and that's when onstar came on and ask me if I was alright and continued to talk to me until the police came and did the incident report. After the police did the report I called in at work and drove the SUV home and took it to the dealership. The incident according to my clock happened around 4:30am if not a little earlier.
