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.

The 2007 Mustang pulled out from the side-street in front of an older Chevy pickup at a tee intersection in a Suburban neighborhood with very restricted sight distance, and was T-boned on the driver's side by the pickup travelling at around 35 mph. The driver's side of the Mustang was severely damaged to the extent that the left front wheel/tire/suspension assembly was ripped off the car. The point of impact was between the left front wheel and the middle of the driver's door. The Mustang is a one-owner car which was bought new and was specifically purchased with side airbags (an option on 2007 Mustangs). The vehicle has been well-maintained. The airbag tab was visible on the seat side bolster. Despite the severity of the impact, the side airbag did not deploy. We have photos documenting the positioning of the vehicles and the damage to the Mustang, including showing the side airbag tab and side of the driver's seat with the side airbag obviously not deployed. We believe that the side airbag was defective since it did not deploy. Note: The steering wheel airbag (subject to the takata recall but not yet replaced) did deploy correctly.

I was following my wife to the Jeep Dodge Cherokee dealership to get her recall taking care of. On the way there at the off ramp of 575 and riverstone parkway I made a right turn to get off on the ramp to exit and I heard a loud thud and the motor accelerated very loud and odd sounding. I was unable to control the vehicle. The only thing I could do to keep from running into anyone was slam on the brakes when I did that the breaks gave a loud screech and was very slow to stop. I ended up hitting 3 cars on the left side none of the airbags deployed nor did any of the seatbelt lock so the only thing I had to stop me from hitting my head against the steering wheel was to put my hands out in front of me on the steering wheel. When the impact happen it was so fierce that my right hand gave out and was snatched of the steering wheel and I damaged my right arm on the steering wheel column. Still kind of hurts and I still have scars.

There has been no accident. This 2007 Mustang was registered in the state of Michigan but was kept in bonita springs, Florida continuously from 2009 through 2013. Maintenance work for the Mustang was provided by the local Ford dealer in estero, Florida during that time. The vehicle has only been driven 8,698 miles. Our concern is that only those vehicle registered in states such as Florida are being covered for this very dangerous air bag problem. We believe the recall should be expanded to at least vehicles used in the affected states.

I stopped at a stop sign, then made a right hand turn, my car started sliding on the ice in the street, I turned the wheels hard left to avoid a car parked on the street, then I believe I tried turning right to stay on the street, unfortunately I hit a tree with the right side of front bumper hard enough to push the wheel back about 2-3 feet. The air bag did not go off and the seatbelt allowed my chest to hit the steering wheeling causing a chest wall contusion and exacerbation of my low back pain (I had a Fusion of 2 discs with complications of cellulitis and osteomyelitis post-op), along with pain in my left hip replacement because my knee hit the dash. I also have had off and on numbness in my right little finger which I am not sure if it is from something in my shoulder or something in my neck since the surgery. I will have to let my doctor know this when I see him as a follow-up from the er. I also will be letting the doctor or N.P. I see at the pain clinic I go to of this fact. The er provider also said I had some degree of "whiplash". both the air bag and seat belt failed to protect me from injury. I have sent a email to Ford but am waiting for a response.

I was driving on the highway at approximately 60 mph. Without any warning the horn started blowing. It startled me and the drivers of several of the automobiles near me. Apparently, other drivers thought there was some emergency. I took the next available exit from the highway and pulled over at a safe place. I turned the ignition off and the horn stopped blowing. I started the car and pulled onto the street and the horn again started blowing. After stopping and starting again, the horn stopped blowing. The next day I took the car to the Ford dealer. They indicated that everything was "working properly at this time". they said that the "most common part failure is the drivers side module to start." The price quote was $1058.48 to replace the air bag module. I have removed the horn relay temporarily, but I am fearful that possibly the air bag will deploy while I'm driving. It would seem that in any case, this is a dangerous situation. I would be interested in knowing if this is a problem for others and what if anything I should do about this.
