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.

I just bought a used 2008 Ford F150....had it one week and now the airbag light comes on and off every day. Took it to five start Ford and the service advisor told me there is no recall on this problem. I cannot afford to pay to have this fixed so will just have to drive it like it is and take my chances. The truck has 47K on

problem #1

The front air bags did not deploy hello, I ran into the back of a 18 wheeler, incurring $9000 worth of damage to my 2008 Ford F150 pickup truck. I struck the trailer wheels and crash bar. The bumper, grill, evaporator coil, radiator and all of their supports were destroyed the right headlight brackets are broken and the frame is bent. All of the plastic pieces in the front are destroyed. The bumper was pushed into the right front wheel and the hood is folded into a 45 degree. There is more damage and I can send you a copy of the insurance repair estimate if necessary.
