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.

Received safety recall notice for driver airbag 2 months ago saying parts not available yet but they would send another notice when available. Still have not heard anything from them. In the mean time we are driving an unsafe vehicle that could injure or kill us if the air bag deploys. Something needs to be done.
