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.

2009 Hummer H3T Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 112012

H3T 5-cyl

  • 65,000 miles


Traveling at 5mph on neighborhood gravel road, side curtain airbags deployed without any warning. No collision or accident. Entire system went into crash mode and fired seat belt tensioners, and shut down fuel. Had 2 passengers in vehicle, all were uninjured. Was forced to cut airbags off ceiling to see out, and drive vehicle to closest garage. Incident was captured on video by passenger using a gopro camera, showing the exterior conditions and lack of terrain related causes. Multiple other Hummer H3 owners have experienced similar incidents, and I will be looking into legal action if this issue isn't resolved.

The contact owns a 2009 Hummer H3T alpha. The contact was driving 75 mph when both the driver and passenger side air bags deployed without warning. The failure recurred twice. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the dealer confirmed a faulty sensor was the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was contacted and the vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 34,800 and the current mileage was 58,000.
