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 Hyundai Sonata. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle head rest the consumer stated she was involved in a minor accident in a parking lot. As she backed out of a parking space, seconds later she hit another vehicle that was waiting for another space. There was some damage to both vehicles. The consumer soon realized there was a blind spot caused by the head rest on the drivers seat. The consumer stated her view was completely obliterated by the head rest in the rear of the vehicle. The head rest lined up perfectly with the rear windows support on the drivers side and thus hid any car that would be sitting there.
