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.

My son was involved in a 4 car accident, he was the third car in the accident. The first car claims that another car ahead of her stopped short and to avoid hitting the car she slammed on the brakes causing the second car to hit her in the back. My son couldn't stop immediately so he hit the second car in the back., then the fourth car hit [xxx] on the back with enough force to dent the whole hood and broke the radiator and cave the front bumper into the motor. The car is not drivable. My son had to go in the ambulance since his chest was hurting and his neck got stiff and sore that he couldn't move it. However I don't understand why the airbags didn't engage even when my sons car got hit with enough force to dent his whole front end. Please advice [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

My car was in a single vehicle accident as we hit a power pole head on going at least 50 mph. I wasn't the driver. At impact both the driver and myself had our heads crash into the dashboard. The driver smashed his head into the steering wheel and I hit the area above the glove box. My head also hit the passenger door. The car caught on fire and burned completely to the ground. My concerns are that with an accident of that magnitude, not a single airbag deployed in the car. All 4 passengers received multiple severe injuries. I'm aware that in some situations air bags can make things worse, but in this case I'm sure that the airbags should have deployed and would have been better than us violently slamming our heads and faces onto the dashboard and steering wheel. I'm also interested in seeing why the seat belts didn't constrict us from moving that far forward.
