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.

After applying brakes on rainslick road vehicle hydroplaned into the rearend of a pickup. I hit the steering wheel twice before the seatbelt 'caught'.... 2 broken teeth, brain trauma & concussion, mangled spine/surgery pending. First accident. No one will claim liability for the seatbelt not working and the airbag has been treated as a non-issue. My Jeep has been 'repaired' sans seatbelt.... daimler-Chrysler investigation pending. All I asked, in the beginning, was for my seatbelt to be replaced... not too much to ask.... now I will fight as my quality of life has been compromised permanently and I should not have to argue over a defective seatbelt being replaced... at the very least! I am severely injured and quite frankly am angry, now, that I have to fight for what is 'right'. please feel free to contact me at any time as my life is now homebased with the exception of numerous doctor visits.
