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 : after servicing our Honda vehicle today, there is a warning not to allow a passenger in the front seat, and they cannot or will not repair/replace the dangerous airbag. Why can they not disable it until they can replace or remove it" how can I use this auto for my family if it's dangerous"
