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.

Someone turned left and crashed into the front side of my Hyundai Santa Fe 2004, as I was driving straight, going 45 miles per hour as posted on the highway. I was pushed off the road into a ditch. My seat belt broke. I had bruises on my abdomen and chest. I got neck and back injuries, which I am still dealing with after 3 months. I had damage to my optic nerve and a tear in the disc in my deck, according to an mri and a neurologist.
