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.

There was a blind spot when the consumer looked in both mirrors, he turned his head to look and saw no vehicle. The instant the consumer turned back to the center lane, the vehicle began to spin out of control. The vehicle was totaled and no air bags deployed. The second vehicle of this complaint is: VIN#[xxx] Honda Pilot 2004. The incident occurred on Feb. 6, 2005 in which a similar incident occurred. The consumer looked in both mirrors, turned her head and started in the left lane and instantly swerved out of control. The vehicle spun around several times, went into an embankment, rear first about 40 feet, then hit a small tree. The back window blew out, the trunk was smashed in and none of the air bags deployed. Since the vehicle was totaled the consumer purchased another Honda Pilot and the same incident occurred. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
