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.

2008 Hummer H3 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 162016

Takata recall. I was driving between 10-15 mph on a side road approaching a stop sign to get onto the main highway and the side airbags on both sides deployed on their own. Nothing hit the vehicle to cause them to release. It locked up my front seat belts also. I cut the airbags out to be able to see to drive home, and was able to pull the driver's seat belt around me enough to make it home. I called my insurance company and then called the local Hummer dealer to leave a message for them to return my call. My insurance company told me it would be a dealer issue, and nothing they would cover, but advised me to go to my local insurance agent and talk with them on Monday. This is Saturday, July 16, 2016 and neither the insurance company or the service department of the dealership is open until Monday. I am not sure what happened, but believe that there it may be connected to faulty sensors on the side airbags.
