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.

Feb 7th 2006 I was in a head on collision with another vehicle that deployed both airbags. My Explorer Sport Trac did not deploy any airbags. I had to have a Fusion of C5 & C6 in my neck due to the crash.

I sustained facial injuries as a result of the deployment of the airbags on a 2001 Ford Sport Trac. It is my belief that the air bags deployed for no apparent reason.
