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.

Side passenger and driver air bags were reported to us by service department at dealership to be defective, after the vehicle was taken in for another recall and I asked them to check out why the airbag light stayed on nearly continuously. This is a problem that the vehicle has had 3-4 months since we took ownership. The vehicle was taken once to the dealer (5/14/1999) and we asked the dealership to check out the problem. The vehicle was returned and it was noted that codes were checked and that customer concern not duplicated. We are concerned that because the airbags are defective we could receive more serious injury in the event of an accident.
