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 2006 Chevrolet HHR. The contact stated that while decreasing speed to approximately 40 mph in a construction zone, another vehicle rear ended his vehicle. The driver side seat collapsed backward after the impact and none of the air bags deployed. His vehicle also ricocheted into a heavy truck as a result of the crash. There were no injuries. The contact had not spoken with the dealer or the manufacturer to-date. The vehicle had not been inspected or repaired at the time of the complaint. The current and failure mileages were approximately 11,000.
