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.

I was going home from work in the middle of 4-lane rush hour traffic going across an intersection. With no warning, no lights coming on or anything my car began to lose acceleration and stopped then it just would not move at all! the tow truck had a hard time getting the car onto his truck as the wheels locked up..............no warning lights, never slipped never had any transmission issues.

I just bought a used 2010 Impala with approximately 210000 miles. When I turn on the vehicle, the airbag light is constantly on and the driver's information system indicates that the airbags need to be serviced. I have contacted the dealer and they have not yet been able to resolve the issue. If there are any changes, I will report them. I am very concerned for the safety of myself or my passengers with this issue.

When driving with someone in the front passenger seat, the car randomly signals loss of air bags and the instrument cluster either freezes where it's at or completely drops out as if the vehicle is off. The dash says service airbag when this happens and also turns off the passenger side front air bag. It does this multiple times when driving when there is a passenger.
