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.

driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident driver airbag did not deploy the passenger did in accident

On October 15 2010 i was hit head on by a pt cruiser and almost died. i was shocked

when i woke up in the car to find that, my airbag did not deploy and the seat that i was

NOT sitting in had a deployed airbag. my face was bleeding and i was spitting broken teeth

and blood just to breath, my right ear was cut most of the way off and could feel a large

gash/skin flap and bone on the side of my head. to make things worse i was bleeding to death from a six inch hole in my leg where the bone had come out. I'm wondering why my airbag did not deploy? the car was very well taken care of and never had not one problem.

So tell me, is the Honda civic a safe car ???
