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 mother was involved in an accident, driving at 23 mph in a Chrysler minivan. She hit a telephone pole head on. The air bags deployed, although they did not touch my mother, she was wearing her seatbelt. When the knee airbag deployed however, the door covering it was what hit my mother in both her shins with the force of the air bag behind it! although it did not break any bones, the impact caused extensive bleeding and edema under the skin. She suffered a cracked rib and breast bone in the accident, which we all understand, but the added agony of having two extremely bruised and swollen legs (purple, green, red--with lime sized clots under the skin) from her knees to her ankles caused by this "safety device" is infuriating!!! where do I go for answers"?"
