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.

I was in a minor collision. Ran into the back of someone. My airbags didn't deploy and my engine immediately caught on fire and in a few minutes my whole care was on fire and destroyed. There was no known reason how or why the fire started.

SRX 6-cyl

  • 52,000 miles
I just brought this SUV Sept. 2014. Last week I was going around a curve. The rear end swerved and the tires rolled over the curve. The air bags deployed and the car stopped, the car was towed to a Cadillac dealer.( weeks before I found out about the recall on the air bags, seat, suspension and seat belt.) so, when I told the adjustor about the recall he just brushed it off and said, " it's not the recall.". I don't think the adjustor worked for an outside company. I need to get my car independently checked so I can find out if it was the recall items. How could my air bags deploy from going over the curve" the car has no damage... none! I think the dealer does not want to fix the recalled items or they fixed them wrong. Because my driver seat was making some crazy sounds the weeks before the airs bags came out. Plus, I told the dealer and he said all the work was done to the car. I think their lying.... is there a government place I can have the car checked or can you send someone? can you please help me" thank you for your time.

The passenger side airbag light will turn to off with a passenger in the seat. It appears to occur when the passenger changes position/shifts their weight in the seat. The service airbag light will trigger until the sensor finally responds and turns the airbag back on. I have read where this is a recall in other make & models but different year.
