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.

Service airbag light has come on 3X in the life of this vehicle (at 99,500 miles currently). First was for right front airbag sensor. - replaced at a cost of 300+ dollars around 65K miles. Second was seat sensor - recalibrated it, no charge. Now at 99,500 miles my left front airbag sensor is bad. - replaced it myself at a cost of $100. Airbag issues at this low of mileage is unacceptable.
