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 slowly approaching the store front to the establishment that I was going to enter. I braked and the automobile began to accelerate and would not stop until the it climbed the curb and drove into the stores front door. This caused quite a bit of damage to the store and I was injured and transported to the hospital. I was examined and test and X-rays were taken indicating that I had fractured my sternum. The air bags never deployed...updated 11/07/12
