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 have a 2004 Dodge 3500. The dash has two large cracks. One is above the airbag and I am concerned if the airbag comes out, will the dash come apart and hit the passenger.

2004 Dodge Ram was hit by a tour bus resulting in the truck hitting vehicle in front. None of the air bags deployed. The consumer was stopped in traffic when a tour bus rear ended the trailer he was towing. The tour bus hit the truck at about 60 mph which caused the trailer to collapse under the bus and caused the consumer's truck to run on top of the SUV stopped in front of him. The vehicle was pushed down the highway until it rolled over. The driver of the truck was killed as a result of the accident.

During a frontal collision front air bags did not deploy. The consumer sustained neck injuries. The dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem. The consumer had run off the left side of the road and struck a tree.
