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.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic ex. While driving approximately 45 mph he heard a loud popping noise, and then the front driver seat belt retractor system failed. Next the "air bag" warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. After turning off the engine the front driver side air bag deployed without warrant. However he noticed that the "side air bag turn off" warning light intermittently illuminated on the instrument control panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection. The technician was unable to determine the cause of failure. The vehicle was inoperable and has not been repaired for the malfunction. The failure and current mileages were 66,000.

While driving to work with seat belt on had to stop short, seat belt would not retract into harness. While returning home was involved in serious accident causing injuries, broken ribs etc. If seat belt worked would not have been injured. Car was totaled.
