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

  • 131,000 miles


My wife and I were involved in a collision after a woman, who claims to have fallen asleep, sideswiped the car immediately ahead of us on a 2-lane road. In an attempt to avoid a head-on collision, I swerved off the road to the right. She accelerated, turned left and got in front of us and we collided with he right front fender at the wheel-well. The car was totaled. The airbags deployed and the front end was crushed. I was driving and my left arm was broken. The little airbag in the steering column hit me in the chest, bruised me, and caused severe pain. My wife was in the front passenger seat. Her seatbelt was securely fastened, but it did not hold her in place as it was designed to do. On impact, she met the airbag halfway and most of her ribs were fractured. Four (4) of her vertebrae were fractured, as was her right ankle. Her lungs were bruised and one was punctured. Her left knee hit the dashboard and drove her femur through her pelvis. She was taken to umd shock-trauma center where she was intubated, sedated and put in traction for several days before a 7 hour surgery to rebuild her hip and femur. She was in a full-torso cast and used a wheelchair for >6 weeks. She is still rebounding from the effects of the ineffective seatbelt, which did not work as designed.
