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.

During an accident my side airbags were supposed to deploy at the same time. Only one did and not the side I was on. I was wearing my seatbelt, but was still thrown into the drivers side of the car and was seriously injured. My airbag light came on two days before the accident and I was told that my car was safe to drive as long as the light was not blinking (it was not blinking). I cannot afford an attorney to pursue this. I have contacted Ford Motor Co. about this and have been given the run around. I have missed time from work, lost wages and other out of pocket expenses from this. My car was totaled. I want to warn people about this before the same thing happens to them. Do not buy a Ford vehicle.
