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.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford Taurus. While in park, the air bag warning light illuminated. The "please remove articles away from passenger seat" message was displayed across the message board. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the passenger side seat air bag sensor needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 44,000. The VIN was unavailable.

My wife was driving my 2011 Ford tarus and got into an accident and my family was with her. The complete air bags system failed to deploy resulting in head injury to the driver and knee and elbow injury to my daughter and knee injury to my aunt. This 2011 Ford tarus is a lemon and my family could have gotten killed in this death trap. The vehicle is now totaled and is being held by the easton police department impound lot waiting for geico insurance company inspection adjuster. I await to get me another car from the dealer and have hired an attorney to investigate this serious matter because what about if my family would have got killed in this serious accident.
