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.

I had a total loss car crash, a Lexus ES 300 on my way to college, my neck and back were affected and not even one airbag opened to protect the passengers, that thank god I was the only one, that tragic day. I bought that car, not for luxury but for the safety and security it offered and that in my case didn't work. My car has a defect and a very serious one. How many other Lexus might have the same defect? do someone will have to die to solve this.
