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.

On March 20, 2016, my right front tire went off of the shoulder of the pavement and I lost control of the vehicle. I slammed into a brick mailbox at a speed of 45 mph thus causing the airbag to deploy. I sustained an approximate 3 inch long gash on my forehead from the airbag.

My 84 year old father hit a deer on the right front bumper of his 2014 Chevy Silverado ltz going 55 mph on October 30, 2014. All of the air bags deployed except for the drivers air bag. The drivers air bag did not deploy. In addition to the drivers air bag not deploying, there was structural damage to the right front passenger side bumper. My father took his vehicle to james wood motors Decatur, 2111 S hwy 287, Decatur, tx 76234, to get an estimate on repairing the vehicle. They talked him into trading his 2014 Chevy Silverado ltz wrecked vehicle for a 2015 Chevy Silverado ltz. [xxx] told my father that they would be salvaging the vehicle, or something like that, and they encouraged him to trade in his wrecked vehicle because the trade in value would be affected by the crash. Keep in mind that my father had a long relationship with them with trading in vehicles for newer ones and they knew that my father was very concerned with the trade-in value of his vehicle. They never discussed with my father the fact that the drivers air bag did not deploy. Today, I ran a car fax check on my father's crashed vehicle and the report shows: No accidents reported, no structural damage reported, no air bag deployment reported. Also, the car fax report shows a new owner from grand prairie, Texas, that purchased the vehicle on 3-36-2015. I think it's outrageous that james wood motors Decatur took advantage of my father because of his age, encouraged him to trade in his wrecked vehicle and then they turned around and sold the vehicle to someone without reporting any of the damage to the vehicle and the fact that the drivers air bag did not deploy. Someone needs to look into this. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I was going North when a vehicle suddenly stopped in front of me. I braked as quickly as possible, the 2014 Chevy Silverado that I was driving only slowly came to a stop. Unfortunately, I rearended another vehicle. Thankfully I had not gotten up to the speed limit (30mph) and was only going 20mph. My truck would not brake quickly. No screeching tires, no black marks on the road. The stop was so slow that I had time to turn the steering wheel and only damage part of my front end. The grill, bumper, and hood were smashed in. No airbags came out of the truck, and my onstar service sensor did not go off. After colliding with the vehicle my 2014 Chevy shut off by itself. I had the brake still depressed & put the truck into park.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado. Consumer writes in regards to improperly functioning airbags. The consumer stated the vehicle was taken to the dealer three times, all within the month of June for the same safety issue regarding the air bags. June 3, 2014, the consumer was told upon picking up the vehicle, the air bag wires under the seat had just been disconnected. They said it was a simple fix of pushing the wires back together. On June 17, 2014, when the consumer picked up the vehicle, the consumer was informed the wires were frayed. On June 20, 2014, the air bag light illuminated, and the vehicle was returned to the dealer.
