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.

The car was being pulled out of the driveway onto the street, at about 5 mph, when both the driver's and passenger's side airbags deployed. The car did not hit anything, and shows no visible damage. A police report was filed, in which the officer stated that there was no apparent reason for the airbags to have deployed.

This is a follow up to my original complaint NHTSA id number: 10554185 now with this nationwide airbag recall I suspect my incident is related but am very concerned that after my complaint my vehicle does not appear on the recall list. Obviously since then I have repaired my vehicle but at my expense. After contacting this Agency, Honda headquarters in us and the Honda dealer at the time I got no help or guidance, and yet a year later there is this massive recall on airbags that took years and multiple stages and loss of life to come to light. At the time of my incident emergency response and police remarked that in all of their experience they had not witnessed the state of how and why my airbags deployed. Does this not raise a flag now? please help.

As I was driving on the service road a vehicle in front of me stopped short, I steered my vehicle to the leftside of the road to avoid a collision. It was raining and the road was slick causing my car to go into a tail spin. I gained control of my car without making impact to anything and my driver side airbags deployed, although my airbags burst out they did not appear to inflate completely. Also my driver side seat belt completely came out of its track. I suffered a scratch/burn on the left side of my neck and a bruise below my right shoulder from the seatbelt. Ambulance and police were called to the scene. I have a police report, the police commented that they had never witnessed a similar situation of how and why my airbags and seatbelt were in that condition without skid marks or impact.

The contact owns a 2010 Honda Fit. The contact stated that the passenger side air bag indicated that the air bag was turned off without anyone or anything in the seat which should only occur when someone under 80 pounds was in the seat. The dealer inspected the vehicle and was unable to diagnose the failure. The dealer also replaced the seat, but the failure continued to occur. The failure mileage was 7000 and the current mileage was 8200.
