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.

Consumer's vehicle was involved in a collision on June 9, 2005.. the airbags deployed before the impact. The consumer saw something flash in her face, which was the center of the steering wheel, and the airbags deployed. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, and they said that there was something wrong with the SRS, and they found a faulty sensor # 450047 in the front of the vehicle. It has been fixed since this accident.
