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 took my car for service on 2/20/2015 and the next day the service airbag lights came on stayed on even after I turned the car off and back on. The next day it didn't come back on the following day which was 2/22/2015 it came on and again and stayed all day. On 2/23/2015 didn't come on at all then came back on again on 02/24/2015 and remained on until I wrote this complaint. I called my dealer and they gave me an appointment for 2 weeks on 3/12/2015 if something is wrong with the airbag I'm not safe and my warranty may no longer cover it at that time being this is my only means of transportation.

Service air bag signs came on when vehicle is started from cold for the first time in the morning. It also happened on 12/06/2014 and 12/11/2014. I took it to dealership and they replaced N-tensioner kit on 12/12/2014. This morning "service air bag" sign came on again as soon as I started the car. The sign stayed on till at least 30 minutes.
