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.

I was just in an accident three days ago and the air bags failed to deploy. I was moving at a speed to activate balm (35-45 mph). My neck is now in alot of pain as a result of this accident. It was such a hard hit my back wheels came off the ground! it was a T bone hit, but ihit square with driver side front wheel, and with stopping time. I believe that my neck would have been supported if the air bags would have deployed.
