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 was in a head on collision. The seat air bag went off as well as the side curtain on the drivers side. The only thing I have to complain about is when the airbag deployed on the steering wheel it broke in the middle. Now I have a V shape cut (had to get 16 stitches). I don't believe it should have broken the way it did. Now I have a scar on my forehead. I have photos of the accident.
