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.

I was involved in a rollover accident in Nov. Of 2005 and I was driving a Honda CRV 2001. The airbags did not deploy during the accident or after. The vehicle rolled several times and there was over 100 feet of debris. Why didn't the air bags deploy? the CRV was a total loss.
