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.

On 11/24 I was involved in an accident. I hit someone who lost control of their vehicle and pulled out in front of my car suddenly and without giving me much response time before I hit her car. My Isuzu Rodeo had extensive engine and body damage and my concern is that the air bags never deployed. I was going at a high rate of speed, being that I was on the highway traveling on the hov lane. Thankfully the injuries have only been soreness and nothing too serious since we were wearing our seatbelts.

While traveling at any speed heard a loud rattling noise was coming from under dashboard. Consumer states the rattling sounds like the whole dash is coming loose or the air bag has come disconnected.

Passenger side air bag assembly mounts have come loose which causes air bag assembly to move around behind dash. This rattle is very bothersome and can not allow anyone to ride in the front passenger seat because it might go off. We have been to the dealership twice for repair of this but it keeps coming loose. The dealership has given us several conflicting explainations as to why it keeps coming loose. They have altered the repair documentation saying no work was needed but they tell us the dash was removed and the assemebly reattached and secured. We have asked to speak with a manufacturers rep but they say we will have to what until he is in town. We have been waiting for over a month and a half for an appointment with him. Meanwhile we can't allow anyone to ride in the front passenger seat.
