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.

My husband was driving a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 when the front left tire blew. For a few seconds he was able to keep control of the truck but then it made a sudden jerk to the left and pulled him off the road, he fought it for a few more seconds until it did the sudden jerk thing again to the left and he slammed into 2 oak trees where the seat belt failed and he was ejected from the truck. After impact and me running to the truck I noticed he had been ejected, began looking for him then the air bag went off. There were several things wrong with this whole thing and I am just now getting a recall notice on the left tie rod ball stud.what about the seat belt and air bag delay? if this is what cause the sudden jerking to the left now all my questions have been answered. Just wish it would have been released sooner maybe I wouldn't be a widow at the age of 41!
