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 driving my 2007 Chevrolet Silverado on a highway at approximately 65 mph during a light rain shower when there was a loud bang sound similar to a shot gun blast and the seatbelt pre-tensioners pulled myself and my passenger hard back into the seats. The hazard lights began flashing immediately and the airbag sensor light came on. Contacted onstar to run a diagnostic and they showed there was a collision detected which fired the seat belt pre-tensioners. There was no collision, not even a bump in the road that caused this. This was a very startling event that easily could have caused a panic reaction and an accident. There was a smell of spent gunpowder in the cabin of the vehicle after this occurred. We unlatched our seat belts to relieve the pressure against our bodies and noticed they would not retract or pull back out. They are now useless. The injury was a bruise to my left collar bone where the seatbelt retracted. The vehicle is now not safe to drive since the seat belts don't work and for fear of the airbags deploying.
