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 in a single car accident on November 14, 2005 in a 2005 Dodge Ram pickup truck. I hit a deer and then hit a tree going 45-50 mph. My air bag did not deploy and the fuel switch did not turn off. I do not understand why the airbag did not deploy as it should have.
