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.

Anti-lock brakes failed to operate during 'sudden stop' causing crash. Air conditioning system does not cool car off, even at lowest temp. Set and highest fan setting; car was brought into dealer 3 times for this as of this date; car does not take fuel - auto shut-off prevents it from accepting fuel; during recent crash caused by total brake failure, air bag light came on but no air bag deployed - why didn't the air bag deploy?; low fuel light does not come on; remote will not lock car, only unlock

While driving a Jaguar rental car from hertz we were broad sided on the passenger side by a limousine running a red light. The force of the impact pushed our car into an SUV in the turn lane before our car landed on the median. The car was totaled. The airbag indicator light appeared in the panel, however, no front or side airbags deployed. Passenger sustained a head injury due to the accident, hitting the window and door frame during the collision. Why didn't the airbags deploy?

- Tucson, AZ, USA
