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.

On Jan 17th,2011 my vehicle was wrecked by the dealer on site of dealership. The whole front end was caved in on center. The driver a mechanic at don woods Chevrolet was driving at a higher then normal speed. He hit a pole dead center and the air bag did not deploy. The driver was injured to what extent I am not sure, but I am not wanting this car back feeling the airbag may deploy at anytime due to the hit it took or it isn't safe and will not deploy upon an accident.

I bought a 2010 Chevy Equinox in Nov 2009. Whenever a passenger rides with me using a laptop the passenger-side airbag light goes "off" and the dashboard computer display says "service passenger airbag." It's consistent and very much a safety issue since the passenger airbag would not deploy in an accident while using the laptop. We do a lot of long-distant driving and laptop use is a business necessity. The Chevy safety folk said, "don't use a laptop" - a very unsatisfactory response.
