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.

Hello just the other day I noticed that the airbag light came on.the one on the cluster on the drivers side.I tried resetting it works for a minute and it pops back on.did some research on the web and it stated that I was a common problem in the 05 Magnum. If that's the reason how come they didn't recall the vehicles.big mistake if the lights on guess what get in a crash airbag won't work.that can be real bad like a life being lost and we don't need that at all.

I christopher sims was in a mva 3-24-09. A truck hit me head-on at over 30-35 miles an hour and the airbag did not deploy. You could see the sensor as plain as day. I did sustain injuries from the accident. What do I need to do about this problem?
