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.

We were traveling down a wet road at 40 mph when the traffic in front of us suddenly stopped and we slid into the car in front of us at about 30 mph. Neither mine nor the drivers airbag deployed when from the damage they should have.

It was another Sunday afternoon, we had just left church (me, my husband, and 2 year son and was on our way to see a friend and her newborn baby at the hospital. On our way to the hospital a truck pulled out from the access road from I-20 directly into our paths. We were traveling under 50 mph and had the right of way....all we could do to avoid the truck was to hit the brakes. Unfortunately, that was not sufficient. Our 2004 Dodge Neon struck a chevyrolet Avalanche pick up. The impact was on the front passenger side where it completely destroyed the right front fender, grill, headlights, and the hood is now a rainbow over the engine. The ugliest part of this though, is that I was the passenger in the front seat, the passenger's air bag as well as the driver's air bag never deployed. In addition, the seat belt never locked, and I was thrown forward with the impact of the car. My forehead struck the windshield, then the dashboard in front of me. My chest also hit the dashboard, and my knees were forced up under the glove compartment area. Yes, I know this may sound minor with all the accidents that happen, and thank god it was. But I hate to know that this happened to me, and could more than likely happen to someone else, and they may not be as fortunate. I am now suffering from soreness in my chest and back, my knees are bruised, and I have severe whiplash in my neck. This incident has made me rethink the safety of the Dodge Neon, and I will now reconsider a much safer alternative for me and my family.

: the contact stated the vehicle was involved in a front impact crash while traveling 40 mph in which the front driver and passenger air bags did not deploy. The contact was not wearing the seatbelt during the crash and sustained minor injuries. A police report was taken. There were no prior warning of the airbag malfunction. The vehicle was towed to an independent body shop for further examination. Updated 12/5/2006 -

The contact's vehicle was involved in a head on collision. Upon impact, airbags did not deploy, and seat belts did not lock. The vehicle has not been inspected to see why this occurred. The vehicle was towed, and the tow truck driver and police officer on scene stated the vehicle was totaled. She has not called Dodge at this time.
