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.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Accord. While driving 50 mph, the contact made an incorrect turn and struck a palm tree with the front end of the vehicle. During the crash, the safety harness retractor failed and the air bags did not deploy. There were no injuries and a police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a junkyard and has not been diagnosed by the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 24,000.

I was in a high speed motor vehicle crash along with a coworker that I car pool with in the 2006 Accord when a dog ran out in front of the car at 4:30 am on the highway on my way to work. I was traveling at approximately 70-75 mph, braked and swerved, but still hit the dog at high speed. The dog was of medium to large size approximately 60-70 lbs and caused considerable damage to the front bumper. I then lost control of the car, went of the road, and the vehicle rolled at least 3 times. The vehicle sustained a great amount of damage to the front bumper as well as to the entire passenger side of the car, yet no airbags deployed. I was told by my Honda dealership that "the sensors for the airbags were very small and must be hit directly in order for the airbags to deploy, so the sensors must not have been hit just right, and there was probably no reason to be concerned. However, anyone who saw the damage to my car, including state troopers, ems, tow truck drivers, as well as family and friends, all stated that the airbags should have deployed in this instance. I did not find that these airbags to be very beneficial if what the person at the Honda dealership said was true. Both my passenger and I suffered whiplash, back and neck strain, and mild concussions, thankfully that was all. However I could not help but wonder if the airbags would have saved us from the injuries we did sustain. The car was totaled by insurance company. Therefore, no repairs have been done. I am debating whether to file a complaint with Honda regarding a possible defect in airbag sensors.
