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.

It was sleeting and I lost control on a curve. I had been driving about 50 mph, but brake before the curve and brake very hard when I tried to regain control of the vehicle, as it was sliding sideways toward the curve. I went off the curve and hit an elevated crossroad, which sent the vehicle airborne. I was airborne over most of the side road, with the rear of the vehicle hitting just the last few inches of pavement, which then sent the vehicle nosediving into the ditch. The embankments were 4-5 feet tall. I had two very hard front end impacts and hit my head on the steering wheel twice. The frame of the vehicle was bent and there was a lot of damage to the under of the vehicle, but the airbags did not deploy. The vehicle has been deemed a total loss by my insurance company. I have a lot of concern with the fact that the airbags did not deploy and know that there were other vehicles of my year and type that did have faulty airbags recalled, but mine has not been.

My seatbelt light comes on. I take it to the dealer for correction along with other maintenance issues I had about my vehicle. All this is under warranty. After regular maintenance is taken care of the seatbelt light stays on. The light never gets fixed or goes out. The vehicle was never in an accident that makes the bags deploy. I bring the truck back many times but the issue never gets taken care of. Now that the warranty is off they want to charge me $1000 for repairs that should have been taken care of under the warranty and the truck will not pass inspection until this gets taken care of..

: the contact stated while traveling 75 mph the vehicle swerved to the right and then over corrected. The vehicle went into a ditch, then flipped several times however, the airbags did not deploy. Seat belts were in use and injuries were sustained. The vehicle was towed first to a wrecker service then it was taken to an insurance company. No inspection as to why the air bags did not deploy. The manufacturer has not been alerted. Updated 04/06/06.
