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.

Vehicle was in an accident with a rollover. The vehicle was in an accident where the front right corner hit a piece of farm equipment. The drivers side airbag deployed and pushed the drivers left arm through the drivers side window. The vehicle then hit a ditch and rolled. The drivers arm was crushed by the car. The drivers side curtain airbag did not deploy. Had the drivers side curtain airbag deployed there would have been no injury. Recommend that front and curtain airbags work in conjunction with each other instead of individually. The deployment of both airbags would have prevented all injury. The accident itself was not the fault of the manufacturer.
