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.

Drivers seat slid forward forcing my knee into the dash. I sustained a cut to my left eyelid, which may have been caused by hitting the stearing column. The air bags did not deploy though I hit the rear of another SUV, a Blazer. Seat belt did not seem to hold me in place or restrain me.
