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.

air bag didn't deploy air bag didn't deploy

I was leaving work on Saturday,July 9,2016, when going over a speed bump slow as possible I was pulling my trailer at the time what I use to detail numerous vehicles. When I felt a jerk from the trailer consisting of water in the tank the force of weight pushed my truck into some hedges as I pressing on the brakes the truck wouldn't stop because of the weight of the trailer pushing against it that's when the truck struck a light pole. My lip hitting the steering wheel causing a big gasp of meat resulting of me getting stitiches. But with the hard impact neither air bag deployed. I have included 2 pictures.
