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.

My wife hit a old style van that had stopped for a dog crossing a the road. The whole front end had to be replaced. Hood, grill, lights, both fender had to be repaired, also the steal tube under the radiator frame had to be cut out and replaced. On 11/5/2010 I hit a deer going 30 mph, again front end damage. Both times the air bags didn't deploy, and on star didn't respond. I asked two different Chevrolet dealers if the air bag sensor could be tested, answer was no.
