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.

problem #2

RX 300 6-cyl

I was involved in an accident where I collided with a pickup truck in front of me. We were traveling about 40 mph, when we both braked when a third car in front slammed on his brakes to make a sudden left turn without signaling. I'm concerned my airbags are defective because they did not deploy upon impact. There was substantial damage done to the front of my vehicle. It's a good thing the seat belt worked as it should, or I would have sustained injuries.

When driving at low speeds, the vehicle surged forward without warning. This caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle and hit a building head on. Upon impact, both frontal air bags did not deploy.
