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.

The airbag warning light came on and stayed on the day after I purchased my vehicle. The dealer was immediately contacted and they advised that the airbag would most probably not deploy in the event ot a collision. I was also advised they had a previous occurrence, recently, of the same nature and believed it might be somehow caused by an anti-theft system the dealer installs on all their vehicles.
