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.

Airbag indicator light came on my vehicle. After bringing it to a dealership I was informed I need a new drivers side impact airbag and electrical harness. My vehicle has never been in an accident and I feel the manufacturer should correct this serious safety defect. Also my ABS wheel speed sensor wiring was severed by suspension parts due to placement of wiring causing loss af ABS and traction control function without any fault of mine. I feel that the SRS system as well as the ABS system are the two most important safety features and if they should fail as mine did I feel it is the manufacturers responsibility regardless of any warranty.
