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 stopped in the passing lane at a construction site on route 95 in ri. The vehicle in back of me failed to stop and crashed into the rear of my vehicle. The reclining mechanism on the driver's seat failed which resulted in me being thrown into the back seat causing a back injury. The impact from behind caused my vehicle to crash into the vehicle in front of me, neither airbag went off. My vehicle had extensive damage to both front and rear, the vehicle was a total loss. Do you have any information on reclining seats failing due to rear impact? I would appreciate any information that you could provide.
