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.

As an overweight 6'9" citizen and phd scientist, I would like to know what safety tests are done for people that deviate from a normal size and weight. I understand that safety tests are done for children, but what about people that are very tall, or as it is an increasing problem in the us, people that are very obese? my seat belt touches my neck rather than going over my shoulder, potentially exposing me to neck injuries. The passenger airbags will impact my knees rather than my body, and there is no neck support from my headrest. I am quite concerned that I could be severely injured in an accident since vehicles are not properly tested to support tall and/or overweight individuals. Presumably the NHTSA and ntsb could be held liable for a lack of such testing were someone injured in an accident. Even neglecting safety information, someone who is 6'9" such as myself will not fit into most vehicles, and only some vehicles with ample leg/head room are safe for me to drive comfortably.

Recently purchased a 2003 mustang GT convertible and the dealership cannot seem to get the top to stop leaking. I recently filed a report with the dispute settlement board to get Ford to replace the car. However, it recently rained and I attempted to contact the dealership to continue the warranty work on the convertable to include replacing the front seats due to water spots. Dealership tells me they cant service the car because it is currently with the dispute settlement board, Ford tells me it is still my car to get it serviced. I am at a total loss, if Ford wants to drop new seats in the car every time it rains that is fine they can waste the money. I love the car but the dealership has acknowledged that they cannot fix the problem. Dispute settelement board states they can't hear my case until the end of August. Well by then the car will be full of mold smell from the rain and the seats will look worse then they do now......
