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.

While driving down a paved two lane road the side airbag on the passenger side of our 2005 Ford Taurus deployed causing approximately $2000 in damage to the vehicle. The vehicle had 64,000 miles on it at the time of the incident and was taken to the local Ford dealer fremont Ford. The dealer analyzed the incident and decided the airbag deployed because the vehicle went into a skid. This was not the case as it was traveling down a straight two lane highway. We appealed the decision to Ford legal and was told since the vehicle was out of warranty there was nothing they would do. I argued airbags were not something you would expect to wear out and Ford should pay for the damage. Ford stated they were not aware of any problems with airbags on their vehicles and there was no appeal process to their decision.
