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.

A car rear ended us on the freeway. We were going 70mph and they averaged 20mph faster. When the struck my rear end it propelled us, across 2 lanes, into the side of a tractor trailor. We bounced off the trailers wheels and ended up on the other side of the freeway. If it wasn't for the stability and sturdiness of the car we would surely be dead. I didn't think about it until later.........not one airbag deployed!! the rear impact head rest engaged. I just figured hitting the entire right side of the car (with both of the trailer tires indenting in the passenger side) at minimum speed of 70mph, the side impact air bags should have deployed. Not really complaining. But maybe something to look into. The Jeep was repaired and im still in love with it. I'm not uploading photos. If there are any questions, I have photos and all documentation, just email me.

"takata recall" on February 27, 2016, my car, Jeep Patriot, that I was not driving was crashed and demolished by another driver's car, while my fiance was driving it on an unmarked city street intersection, and she was hurt, because, the airbags did not deploy. Some 60 days prior to the 2/27/16 accident, my car was hit by another car as it was parked with my fiance inside, and the airbags did not deploy. Twice the airbags did not deploy, and I maintain Chrysler sold me a defective vehicle, and owes me another vehicle, that will deploy the airbags in the event I am driving, and another driver hits me. The second crash of the two(2)demolished my Jeep Patriot. My Jeep was struck at the left wheel, and a portion of the door on the driver's side of the vehicle. When, my Jeep was struck the first time, the repair person, stated, it was strange, that the airbags did not deploy, and a similar statement was made by the investigator, for the at fault driver's insurance company, that, he wondered; why the airbags did not deploy, when my Jeep Patriot was crashed, and demolished.
