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.

The contact owns a 2009 Hummer H3. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 35-40 mph over a pot hole, the side air bags deployed. The passenger in the front seat was struck in the head with the air bag and sustained minor injuries. The seatbelts then became extremely tight on the passengers and the interior dome lights illuminated. The contact was able to drive the vehicle to her residence. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. The approximate failure and current mileages were 13,000.
