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.

Passenger air bag light comes on saying "passenger air bag off" with someone sitting in the passenger seat.

I have experienced complete battery failure twice on my new Ford Mustang. The local Ford dealers service department cannot give me a good explanation as to what is causing this problem. They told me that my car was not being driven enough. This is no answer. They tried to sell me an under the hood power disconnect apparatus. I said no as this would make me reset all of my radio and clock settings every time I disconnected the battery. I don't dare leave my car idle for any length of time as this will probably lead to another power failure. My car only has 1,100 miles on it and it has had to be towed twice to the dealer to have a new battery installed. No new car should have this problem.
