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.

My airbag does not work for me I weigh 126 they said it can't be fixed it's made for a child I'm not a child. I should of been told this before I bought the Escape. I was lead to believe I had the safety of a passenger airbag. I wouldn't have bought this car if I knew this. I was lied too. I'm not safe.
