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.

My 19 yr. Old daughter was involved in an accident on 10-4-10 in which the entire front end of her 2008 Honda CR-V ex-L appears to have been hit "head on". however, the accident occurred as she was making a left turn going North and a South bound driver ran a red light, swerved, and took out the entire front end of her car, spun her around and then hit another one. I'm writing because the only airbags to deploy were the passenger window bags (front and rear) and the steering wheel airbag. The "sensors" should have signaled the "driver side" bags to deploy. She suffered a severe concussion and we cannot determine what part(s) of the vehicle her head struck. The impact was severe enough to "break" the seat belt mechanism (it will not retreat back). The driver side appears to have taken the hardest hit from the impact. Thus, it's extremely disconcerting to me that the "driver side air bags" did not deploy. I've made the Honda dealership aware of this and my insurance company. No one seems to think it's a big deal. Sorry! I think it's a huge deal! I researched the safety standards of this vehicle extensively before purchasing it for her and safety was the #1 reason I purchased this particular automobile. Can you please help me?

2008 Honda CRV hit in driver & rear driver side doors by older full size Chevrolet pickup that was coming too fast over blind hill at about 30 to 35 mph (in a 25mph zone), unable to stop, and sliding on snow and ice. Honda driver was turning left & headed for shallow ditch that was straight ahead, to try to get out of way. No airbags deployed, even though car has side airbags. Driver hit head on either window or side column between front & back doors. Driver incurred $7000 in hospital costs for investigation of head, neck, back, & shoulder pain. Pain & headaches continue after 17 days. Car has not been repaired yet. It will be repaired at Honda dealer. Contact us if you want the parts. We will have them saved. Diane barlow
