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 contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact was a passenger in the vehicle when the driver, who was traveling 65 mph, abruptly applied the brakes in an attempt to avoid striking a deer. The driver crashed into the deer and the air bags deployed, but the front passenger seat belt did not restrain the contact in the seat. The driver's side seat belt worked properly. The contact sustained shoulder and chest injuries from the crash. The vehicle was not inspected or repaired for the failure. The VIN was not available. The vehicle was sold. The failure mileage was 87,000.
