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 consumer was involved in two frontal collisions. Upon impact, the air bags failed to deploy. The cause had not been determined at this time. The first incident occured on a slight snow covered road. The consumer lost control of the vehicle which resulted in front and side damage and the vehicle was backed against the concrete barrier. The second incident occured while the vehicle was in motion and the consumer lost control whenthe vehicle was driven over a small ice patch. The consumer had run into a light pole and completely damaged the middle front of the vehicle. The consumer was informed of recall# 04V596000, which may have been the cause of both incidents.

Consumer read an article in the local newspaper about a NHTSA investigation of the air bag clock spring for a different model of vehicle. Consumer wanted NHTSA to be aware that there were other vehicles experiencing the same problem. Air bag light illuminated, and would not turn off. Vehicle was taken to the dealer, who determined that air bag clock spring had to be replaced.

I hit a car in front of me driving to work. The driver in front of me had already hit the car in front of him, when I realized that he had come to a complete stop, I wad driving about 30 miles per hr and hit my brakes, my Durango slid and hit the car. I totaled the entire back end of the car I hit, and currently the damage to my truck is still climbing. My concern is that the impact was pretty hard and the damage is major, not including the driver I hit was complaining of neck, knee and back injuries. My concern is that my air bag did not deploy. Luckily I was alone and my older children were not in the front seat. I substained minor injuries, however the policewoman who arrived at the seen was quite surprised that the air bag did not deploy and suggested that I look into to why.
