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.

Consumer stated her son was involved in a rollover accident. Prior to the accident the anti-lock brakes did not work and the air bags did not deploy on impact. The dealership told her the airbags could still be checked to see if they are defective. The vehicle rolled twice and the front end hit the ditch. There was dew on the road and there was a deer in the road. He then slammed on the brakes and they locked up. There was a police report filed. He sustained a bruise collar bone, bruises on his legs, a bump on his head and he has to go to the dentist this week to have his teeth checked. The vehicle was totaled and when the consumer called the dealership they told her to call and file a complaint.
