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 'm financing a Hyundai Tiburon 2003 and the air bag in the front drivers side has been malfunctioning, the light is on and has been on. Also the windows wont roll down and the oxygen sensors have gone out as well. Is there any remedy that can be done for my car since I owe $9,000 dollars on it to fireside bank?
