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.

Hit a deer at 70 mph on I-70 in Kansas. I hit it full force with the front end. Half of the deer went over, half the deer went under. Nothing left but guts. Front end on driver side depressed about a foot. Wife and I received whip lash, wife is worse. Baby was okay. The trailblazers front end was totaled. Airbags did not come out. GM stated that in order for the air bags to work in this model is the brakes have to be depressed 1/20th of a second prior to impact. This is hog wash. Brakes have nothing to do with the airbags. I do not care about the vehicle, my concerns are the safety features of this vehicle.
