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 2003 Ford Windstar. The contact stated that while the driver was traveling approximately 55-60 mph, the front air bag suddenly deployed damaging the driver seat. The driver sustained a minor injury in March 2009, the vehicle was involved in a crash and the air bags did not deploy. The dealer called the manufacturer who stated that the contact would be responsible for repairs which would include new wiring and a driver seat replacement. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 90,000 and the current mileage was approximately 98,000.

A vehicle turned left infront of me. Having no time to apply my brakes, my vehicle front end struck the right side of the other vehicle at approximately 45-50mph. It was a direct frontal impact to my vehicle of such force it killed the other driver. Neither of my airbags deployed.
