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.

My 2012 Hyundai tuscon was involved in a serious accident. My daughter was the driver and no other passengers in the vehicle. All airbags in the vehicle deployed at impact except the driver's airbag? I see numerous Hyundai recalls and airbag issues on the internet, but no mention of the tuscon. My daughter has serious injuries as a result of the airbag failing to deploy.

We were going through a green traffic light, we were about the 6th car through the light when vehicle coming out of nowhere ran the red light from the cross street at about 55mph, did not try to stop, we slowed to almost a stop and swerved to avoid the person. She did not try to stop and T-boned us in the drivers wheel and door, but the airbags did not activate, even with this high speed collision. This is the second accident of this kind where they did not activate. The first was in January and we were rear ended at a high speed while stopped at a traffic light.
