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.

The contact owns a 2008 Ford Mustang. While driving approximately 20 mph on a wet and lightly sand covered road surface, the vehicle spun 360 degrees. The tire traction control device failed to engage and the vehicle crashed into the guard rail. The vehicle ended up facing West bound on an East bound lane. The air bags failed to deploy, but there were no injuries. The vehicle sustained severe frontal damage, and there was also damage to the front passenger door and body frame. The police were called to the scene. Recently, the front driver's side automatic shoulder belt retractor system failed without warning. The vehicle is currently inoperative and has not been repaired. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 15,500.
