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.

I was driving my 2003 Ford Ranger XLT when I lost control and rolled the vehicle 4 - 5 times. I was wearing my seat belt/shoulder harness, but the airbags on neither side deployed, even thought the front end and cab was destroyed. The truck was considered a total loss and I am now faced with rehab for up to four weeks for sprains and tissue damage to my right shoulder.

On June 13, 2006 approx. 3:00 pm my father was critically injured in a rollover accident just outside of moses lake Washington. My father still remains hosptalized after having to have an ear reattached, severe head lacerations, a broken eye socket, and broken breast bone, and having the skin torn off his left hand. The Washington state patrol says according to witnesses that his truck flipped 3-4 times causing total destruction of the truck. At no time during the rollover and destruction of the trucks frontend did the air bags deploy. This was a brand new 2006 Ford Ranger with less than 2,500 miles on it. If it was not for a passing nurse and emt the state patrol says my father would have likely died. I called both the dealer, and sent an email to the Ford Motor Company, both declined to comment. I am very disturbed that vehicles are being sold with such problems. Sincerely, patrick martin.
