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.

On July 22nd 2002 I was stopped in traffic, a Ford truck hit me from behind doing 35mph. The impact pushed me into the car ahead of me it ended up being a 5 car pile up. In which my truck front and rear bumper was smashed in. I was thrown forward into the steering wheel causing severe pain days later. I was really surprised the air bags did not deploy. The rear drivers panel bent and also the transmission coolant radiator was smashed in.. it caused $3700 damages to my truck and $2500 to the car(Honda) in front of me.
