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 write the following on behalf of willie G. weddington of 108 karen road, Napa, ca 94558. "I received a recall notice in July, 2015. I have been unable to get the recalled airbag replaced to date. This has been an unreasonably long time in waiting for the repair. I am told there is no fix and there are no parts to fix my vehicle. The dealer is unable to provide me with a comparable vehicle loaner. My request for a replacement vehicle has been denied. My requests for rental reimbursement for a comparable vehicle have been denied. I have incurred expenses and will continue to incur expenses due to the lack of use of my vehicle. In addition, I am a U.S. veteran. I have a veteran's administration construction loan for my house and I have been unable to meet the deadlines due to the lack of use of my Chevrolet. I have incurred, and continue to incur, additional expenses trying to ensure all materials, equipment and workers are at the property site."

My dash has cracked on the drivers side and at the passenger side airbag. My truck was parked with me and my wife sitting in it. It was crunk and when it happened it was very violent causing us to worry that it could have caused the airbag to deploy and cause injury to someone.
