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 turning right in a parking lot at 15+mph when I hit a parking stall curb in the snow. The wheels stopped by hitting the curb with around a 3 inch clearance between the front bumper and the cement block. Both airbags deployed upon stopping on the curb. No body or mechanical damage was sustained to the vehicle.
