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.

I was going to work traveling South on a magor road going 35 mph when another vehicle cut directly in front of my path making a left hand turn onto a cross street. There was no time to brake and my vehicle slammed into him. The other driver was cited by the police with a "failure to yield" citation. My seat belt did not lock and the airbags did not deploy. Upon impact my body was thrown forward and up resulting in whiplash and other injuries to my neck, shoulders and back. I hit my head on the front visor area and my chest area on the steering wheel.
