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.

Stopped at a red light. The drivers seat failed to stay upright with a 40 mph collision from behind. The stationary vehicle, the one with the seat that failed, is a 2005 Chevy Equinox. The vehicle that rear-ended the Equinox was a 1999 Ford Explorer.

During a recent crash that I was in, when my air bag deployed I was pushed back into the seat. The seat came unlatched and plunged into the back seat where I had my daughter in her car seat. It was my understanding by both the insurance company and the dealer that this is to never happen.
