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.

What options are available. Parts are not currently available to fix my driver's side airbag recall problem. My local dealer does not know when parts will become available. Spoke with truck company they have no idea either. Ask for an interim solution - they don't have one except don't drive the truck or go about your business as usual and wait for parts availability. Can I get a rental truck at the mfg. Expense until the parts are available and my truck if fixed?

When involved in a accident the air bags failed to deploy. While driving down the road at night came across a cow in the road. When I noticed it was to late to slow down or move out of the way, when approached at 65 mph. Hit the cow, straight on in the middle of the front grill, when came to a stop, the hood was buckled grill and metal guard along with radiator and all of the front buckled in about 1 and a half feet pushed in, during im pact the airbags failed. I hit my knee on the dash hurt my shoulder and sternum. Doctors were amazed that my injury were not more. I really think the airbags should have deployed. I have photos of what the truck looks like now.
