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.

1. involved in two vehicle motor vehicle collision. My vehicle was T-boned on the passenger side, causing the bumper to be pushed in at least 3-6 inches. 2. I personally believe the impact of the collision, while both vehicles of speeds of less than 20 miles per hour, should have caused my airbags to deploy. Airbags did not deploy. 3. unknown.
