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 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. While the vehicle was being cleaned, the passenger side air bag deployed. Prior to the failure, the seat belt and air bag warning lights illuminated.

My service man was pulling out of parking lot at store when air bags exploded and seat belts locked. He did not hit anything and was only going about 10 mph when this happened. Took to local dealer to see if they could fix it. They said yes, but we would have to pay for it. We could contact the manufacturer if necessary. The bill was $1413.89. (parts $798--labor $562.59 tax 48.19). We had to get it fixed as it is illegal to be on the road without seat belts (or air bags). We feel these are defective parts an D we should be reimbursed by the manufacturer.. this is an unsafe vehichle!!!! thanks

Drivers side seat belt will not lock in to the receiver on side of seat. Dealer said I may have to pay for a diagnoses and replacement plus parts. I say it's a safety issue and should be covered for free. Wonder if other people have had same problem.
