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.

Expedition 4WD 6-cyl

My Ford Expedition was rear ended by a large garbage truck. My air bag did not deploy at that hit. My truck went into a spin and hit another vehicle with the front and driver side and again the airbag did not deploy. I sustained broken ribs, black eye, bruised jaw, and bruised tailbone. Why didn't my airbag go off to alleviate the injuries to me?
