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 was involved in an accident where a vehicle pulled in front of me and I T-boned them at approx. 50-55 mph. Neither the front driver or passenger air bags deployed. Said vehicle now totalled. Contacted Chrysler, filed a claim. They sent a "special investigator" that tried to tell both the body shop owner (who was on scene of accident) and my husband that the accident happened differently than it actually did. The investigators contact at Chrysler, roy porterfield, then explained to me that he thought the accident happened differently than it did. He told me that the airbags weren't supposed to go off unless it is a full frontal impact. This accident was a full frontal impact. I hit the steering wheel in said accident and after three weeks am still in pain and not fully able to return to work.

While involved in a significant accident, the air bags never deployed when they should have. The other vehicle involved did deploy. This is obviously a safety problem.

My son hit a 50ft tree head on and the air bags did not deploy. He and his passenger were both injured and Chrysler is telling me that he wasn't going fast enough or hit hard enough to deploy air bags. Passenger's head broke windshield and my son's tooth is loosened by hitting steering wheel. The front end frame of Jeep is bent. Not hard enough?
