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.

We were traveling northbound in I-25 at las vegas, nm. A vehicle traveling the opposite had lost control, passed the median, and disabled at the right lane we were traveling. It was raining hard and I did not have the chance to avoid it. I had slammed my brakes, skidded and hit the disabled vehicle. The damage in my vehicle was more on the passenger side. Both front airbags did not deploy. At the towing company, they tried to start it and noticed airbag light camed on and flashing. It seems airbags activated after the impact but did not deploy.
