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.

2009 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

  • 11,000 miles


While driving a 2009 Dodge Avenger from national car rental (~11,000 miles on the vehicle) at 70 mph on a Florida toll way, the airbags deployed. There was no collision or contact with anything (animal, road debris, etc.), the road was flat and straight, and there were no circumstances or events that would have caused the airbags to deploy. I was talking on a cell phone using a bluetooth headset at the time and had just moved my blackberry, crossing the steering wheel when the airbags deployed. The force of the passenger side bag deploying severely cracked the windshield. The car was driven to national car rental's return at orlando airport.
