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.

Air bag warning light for passenger air bag came on. We received a recall notice about this issue and took the vehicle in to the dealer. They completed the required repair for under the recall but that did not correct the problem. Dealer advised of additional fees to diagnose the issue. We contacted GM and received authorization for the dealer to conduct a diagnosis of the problem. The result concluded the "SDM" had failed. The dealer could not tell us if the recalled connector could have caused the failure. We were required top pay $300 to fix this safety issue that we feel should have been covered under the recall. Essentially, to make the vehicle safe to operate and correct a problem identified by recall it cost us $300.

Was in a motor vehicle accident. I was going approximately 10 mph. Other driver accelerated to unknown speed and struck my vehicle in the driver door. Door was crushed to the point that it was up against my thigh. Neither of the side airbags went off. Vehicle has approximately $10,600 in damage and I am recovering from a fracture in my lower back. Curious with this kind of damage and injury why the airbags did not deploy.

I was driving on the interstate at approximately 55-60 mph and merged right to take an off ramp to a side street when both side air bag curtains deployed without incident. There were four people in the vehicle at the time of incident and my wife suffered serious chest bruising from the seatbelt locking up. The seatbelt locking mechanism front passenger and front driver side will not retract. At the time of incident I was clearly the only thing on the road with no obstructions. This complaint should be taken very seriously and checked into by General Motors for the safety of myself and others.
