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 T boned, a lady ran a stop sign hitting my car I was passenger, but it was my vehicle. I need up on the dash board when the firemen and emt go on the scene they told us to lean the seats all the way back incase the air bags later deployed and they never did! I ended up getting 2 back surgeries due to that accident ON4/23/07 in my 2001 Chevy Tracker which the airbags never went active and it was a bad impact! there was a police report made of the accident as well.
