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.

: the contact stated while driving 10 mph another vehicle struck the contact in the side at about 40 mph. The vehicle turned sideways in an intersection and the side impact airbags did not deploy.

The contact sustained neck/left shoulder, back, knees, and lower leg injuries, and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where she was treated and released.
