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.

I came to a stop, looked to my left. Saw no car, and proceeded to leave to make a left. Car struck me on the left fender. Heard a long sound with white smoke all in the car that came from air bag, my face was struck so hard by the air bag that it made a large bump on forehead and eyes black in blue swollen with a headache that I've had for some days now. I've had to miss work all week, it also made me neck N side hurt.

I am filing this complaint to alert the NHTSA of a air bag safety issues in my 2006 Ford Mustang. Recently a safety defect issue was discovered about particular models of vehicles that received air bags from the manufacturer takata. I took the Liberty of doing the research on the issues of which the air bag when deployed can send shards of metal or shrapnel into the upper region of both the driver and/or passenger. My year, make, model, and time-frame of vehicle purchased matched with the vehicles identified as being affected with one exception, my vehicle resides in a cold weather state. As my safety and the safety of my passengers is of the utmost important I contacted Ford directly to have the issue remedied to be relayed that my vehicle was not a safety concern. Primarily the claim that living someplace with cold weather somehow protects me from experiencing this deadly issue. To note. Colorado is a state that does in fact reach temperatures between the months of may-October of 100+ degrees on a multiple day basis(please review weather reports). In addition depending on where in Colorado you are located there are areas of humid + hot weather conditions that you can experience. I do not have the option to have my air bag disabled by Ford to protect my well being until a thorough investigation is completed, nor has Ford reached out to consumers to identify what steps they are taking to ensure their safety. My well being is not being protected as it should and I would like something done about the issue. I would like to have the air bags in my vehicle removed and replaced to ensure that nothing as described in the recall occurs. While the manufacturers of the air bag and/or car company's may not feel I am at risk, they are not driving a vehicle with what equates to a potential ied in the steering wheel, and I should not be forced to take that chance.

While operating the vehicle you will lose dash lights, headlights at times, bright lights no longer work, passengerside airbag disabled light comes on, fan motor for heat/air stops working, left rear tail light is not working even after replacement of bulbs, door locks and window switches fail to work, traction control off light comes on, feedback comes through radio speakers as very course static. Some of these may be corrected by heavy breaking, acceleration or by turning car off and back on. This is only temporary and may repeat itself every few seconds.

Before buying the car I run the car and the reverse of the standard transmission was rare and I communicate that to the sales person and he said to me that those things happen because the car is bran new then I buy the car and in about a 4 days later I talk to the sale man and he said the same thing again and then I believe in him and wait but later when I receive a recall for the airbags I went to the dealer and communicate the problem of the standard transmission and when they check that they said that my warranty doesn't cover that and that I have to pay about $900 dollars so I request a recall and help because is not fair I believe in the salesperson and now I have to carry with the bad consequences because the foreman said that, so please help me I don't have that money.
