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.

Airbags did not deploy. Seatbelts did not retract/work. Was involved in a frontal driver side collision in which my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 was totaled. I received head trauma injury per airbag and seatbelt not working. Chrysler/Dodge denying any responsibility w/ their defective product.

Airbag malfunctioned after a front passenger side collision. Airbag did not deploy, instead the entire airbag housing unit came unbolted from the steering wheel, became a projectile, struck driver and damaged steering wheel. Airbag unit, steering wheel, spring, and cruise control arm were replaced. Dealership kept faulty parts for inspection.
