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.

My wife was involved in a single vehicle accident in our 2010 Kia Forte koup, she was traveling 50 mph and attempted to avoid a dog in the roadway when she over corrected and went off the road and hit a ditch, the vehicle was deemed "totaled", during this accident the air bags failed to deploy and the seatbelt failed to restrain her, my wife hit the steering wheel with her forehead, nose, and upper chest.
