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.

Takata recall--I was involved in a motor vehicle accident with my 2011 Kia Optima hybrid. As the impact was pretty hard, the air bags did not deploy. My daughter was jerked forward and hit her face on the dashboard.

Optima Hybrid

  • 63,798 miles
While travelling at approximately 50 - 55 mph on a highway a deer had ran across the road, in order to avoid a collision head on with the deer I took an evasive maneuver and unfortunately collided with the guardrail on the drivers side at approximately 40 - 50 mph. Impacting the entire drivers side of my vehicle. However, no airbag deployment occurred with side curtain airbags and vehicle is now considered a total loss for insurance purposes due to damage and as well as a possible airbag system malfunction in the vehicle.
