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 had a blow out on my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo, causing my vehicle to go off the road to the right running into another vehicle. The seat belt came off, the airbags did not work. I sustained head injuries causing seizures, a displayed shoulder, and a fractured jaw. Due to the head injuries I was unconscious and unable to keep control of the vehicle.
