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 contact owns a 2006 Dodge Dakota. The contact stated that while turning left at approximately 65 mph, another vehicle crashed into him at approximately 45 mph. The air bags did not deploy and the seat belt did not restrain the contact. The contact suffered injuries to his knees and chest as a result. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to an independent repair shop here it was being repaired for the body damages. The failure was not diagnosed. The failure and current mileages were 49,000. Updated 09/30/11 the consumer stated after being struck by vehicle # 2. vehicle #3 was lifted up and turned sideways and rolled into vehicle# 3. the collision forced the consumer down and forward in the seat causing both of his legs to come up and off the floor, striking the dashboard. The movement is what made the consumer believe the seat belt did not lock into place. The consumer was told by others, that the seat belt did lock, but it was the belt that caused the pain across his chest and left clavicle. Update 11/04/11
