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.

The vehicle was at a complete stop and was hit head on by another vehicle, however none of the air bags deployed upon impact. Which resulted in the driver being seriously injured.

I am a captain with the fire department and responded to a 2 car head on crash. Other vehicle had airbag deployment, while this Navigator had a major front end collision and air bags were loaded (not activated) on our arrival. Only one occupant in the Navigator was injured, minor, but required ambulance transportation. Colton fire also responded, and colton P.D. was the investigative authority, sgt. Steve davis was the officer in charge. The owner of the Navigator, linda jones of 1245 West "C" street, colton ca, 92324 stated that the air bag was not de-activated on the passenger side. The frontal impact of this collision should have certainly caused air bag deployment.
