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.

Upon exiting a blind curve at 40 mph, in normal weather conditions, the contact was blinded by headlights from another vehicle. The contact lost control of the vehicle and hit a telephone pole head on. The driver was wearing a seat belt, however suffered a laceration to the face that required stitches.

Wrangler 4WD

Headon crash at 30plus mph and no airbag deployment. Second time a major component in front end has had a promblem. Steering locked so couldnt turn either direction. Insurance company says they have heard of this in the past. Friend at Jeep dealer where towed says looks like major coverup on Chrysler part because of faulty equipment, but he will remain nameless unless otherwise needed. His opinion only.

My wife lost control of vehicle on city streets. She was going approximately 20 - 25 mph. She went into a resident yard where she hit a 8 to 10" dia. Tree and went over it. She then continued across side street and into another yard where she came to a stop against another tree approx- 6 to 8" dia. The seat belt appears to have worked as expected but the airbag did not deploy. She hit her lip on the steering wheel and required many stitches to repair it. She also had large contusions on both of her shins. The bumper was pushed into the radiator. The grill was pushed into the radiator. Both front fenders were buckled as was the hood. Why didn't the airbag deploy?
