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 vehicle was undergoing repair for a minor vehicle accident that occurred on 11/11/04. It was determined that the vehicle had a previous accident and the airbags had been previously removed without being replaced. Diagnostics on the airbag module showed that the airbags had been deployed and were missing. The airbag dash warning indicator also has been disabled somehow. None of these deficiencies were reported at the time of the vehicle purchase. It is uncertain when the original repair was made and by whom. The accident on 11/11/04 was not severe enough for the airbags to deploy. No injuries resulted from the missing airbags.
