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.

We were driving West on I-40 in AZ. A 2 ton truck with a long flat trailer blew it's front drivers tire. The tire came into our lane my husband swerved to miss it then the truck came into our lane forcing us off the road my husband couldn't gain control of the Chevy HHR again. It sent us into a rollover we rolled 2-3 times. The driver's side of the car all collapsed around my husband the roof forced his neck down. The roof ended up down to the steering wheel. My husband suffered a crack in his 3rd C-spine & a broken thumb & lacerated fingers when the car ended up landing on his hand which had gone just above his head. I had to unbuckle my husband to get him into a position so he could breath. 2-failure of the roof to protect the driver the roof encroached into the drivers space causing major bodily harm. 3-car was scrapped. No need at this point to replace or repair.
