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.

The vehicle is a 2003 Chevrolet Venture. I was driving to work on a 25mph road. The passenger seat side airbag deployed. There was no accident or exterior vehicle damage. The airbag just deployed. I was not injured nor were there any passengers in the vehicle at the time. I immediately contacted the Chevrolet dealer who services the vehicle, who said they had never heard of such a thing, I spoke with the service manager who advised me to contact General Motors and my insurance co. He said they would start a file on the incident and he could not do anything until General Motors told him what he could do. The vehicle was drivable and there were no injuries. After work I took the vehicle to the dealer to have them see if the vehicle was safe to drive and show them the deployed airbag. We agreed that I would drop off the vehicle the following Monday and they would inspect the vehicle. After 2 days I spoke with General Motors who said they would have the vehicle inspected and could not authorize a rental car for the time it was at the dealership. I dropped off the vehicle the following day thinking it would be inspected on Monday. After 2 days I spoke with the dealer and General Motors who still had not had the vehicle inspected. Later that day I spoke with a 3rd party inspector whom General Motors hired. He would not be inspecting the vehicle until the beginning of the following week. 9 days after the vehicle was dropped off to the dealer 11 days since the airbag deployed. The entire time the vehicle was at the dealer General Motors would not provide any assistance with a rental car. The 3rd party inspector called after he had inspected the vehicle and informed me it would be another 7-8 days before I would hear anything from General Motors. So we are going to be somewhere between 18 and 21 days to get a response from the manufacturer of the vehicle General Motors.
