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.

FOIA request all documents/info relative to any recalls or known defects of the air bag system in the 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer. Attorney's clients were seriously injured when the vehicle they were operating was involved in a high speed, front end collision. The air bag system did not deploy at the time of impact and as a result the three occupants were injured. *****
