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 air bag light goes on and off periodically. There was concern that the air bag would not deploy when needed or, conversely, it would deploy without any warning. Took it to the dealer, he indicated that a spring needed to be replaced. As I was looking into recalls for this problem, I noticed that, although there was no recall, there were plenty of complaints. Why is this defect allowed to coninue to give consumers problems, but there is no action from the manufacturer to fix via a recall?

The air bag light appeared on the dashboard and remained on. Consumer drove the vehicle to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic informed consumer that a recall was not for this vehicle. The consumer would have to pay for parts and labor. The consumer stated that the recall dealt with the same problem she was having with her vehicle.
