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 in an automobile accident with my Honda CRV. A car turned in front of me and I was unable to stop. I broad-sided the vehicle and the passenger air bag opened but my air bag did not deploy but there was gas coming out of the dash on the driver's side. I went to the hospital by ambulance and sustained neck and back injuries. The car was declared a total loss.
