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 almost killed in a near fatal collision on January 15, 2007. I was in a 2006 Ford Fusion sel with front and side airbags. My car was demolished and but for the grace of god I survived despite my failed airbags. I informed Ford as you can see they started to deploy and stick out a little. The photos prove they failed. Ford is making it difficult to follow through and I have the car being held so it can be inspected. I am afraid they are defective and will result in the death of someone. I was flown by helicopter with severe head injuries and from the pictures, you can see the blood spot where my head cracked the side panel directly below where the airbag should have come out. The impact zones on the car are with out question worthy of making the airbag deploy. Please contact me, as I am tired of trying to work with Ford because of my concern for the lives of others, and all they want to do is be obstructive.

: the contact stated the vehicle was in an accident at 55 mph into a sand dune. The car rolled over four times and the air bags did not deploy. There was no air bag warning light illuminated prior to or after the incident. The vehicle was deemed a total loss by the insurance company and has not been taken to a service dealer.
