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.

Takata recall: My daughter suffered injury as airbag replaced under takata recall blew up on her with intense force causing injury and tearing off her wrist. Seat belt also caused injury as they tighten and cut her check area. It was light collision when passing car scrapped her front bumper. My daughter feel airbag impact caused more damage that light collision.. airbag cut her wrist and threw her hear back and some dust or power went in her eyes.. with the result she lost control of vehicle and her passenger side ran through the side curb.

We received a recall letter and immediately called and scheduled and appointment to have the recalled part replaced. We went to our local Honda dealer - Honda world in westminster, ca. The parts had to be ordered. As of today, Saturday April 11 we have not heard anything from the dealer about receiving these parts and being able to make the repairs. I went online to Honda and found that this is a very serious recall and the part malfunction has caused some deaths. Honda's information online also stated we could get a replacement vehicle if the parts needed to be ordered. We were never offered this. We need this vehicle and cannot go without a car.

I was involved in a head on collision on 1/13/2014. My car was totaled and my airbags did not deploy. This caused extensive injury to myself, in which I was on life support and in a comma for almost two days, hospitalized for a week. The vehicle was so damaged that the towing company expressed their bewilderment that the air bags had not deployed. The insurance company is taking the vehicle to a secure location to be examined and evaluated. I am fortunate to be alive, but am concerned for the safety of others. I own a Honda for the safety and reliability, I now question that safety factor.
