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 was involved in a frontal impact crash with a guardrail face. There was airbag deployment but neither occupant was buckled. Seatbelt pre-tensioner fired and pulled the D-ring out of the B pillar. This potential issue did not appear to have an impact on occupant injuries.
