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.

In 2003 Lincoln Town car when the airbag deployed it shot off the round silver Lincoln emblem which severely lacerated my nose. Thank god it did not take out an eye. I have noticed on the newer models that the emblem is now embedded in the material so it cannot fly off and cause injury.

I had a front end collision in my 2003 Lincoln Town car and neither the drivers side nor passenger side air bags deployed. It was not until the car had stopped and I was getting out of the car that the drivers airbag deployed. The passenger side never inflated. The impact to my vehicle was so severe that the front end is completely gone and the hood was crumpled back to the windshield. The engine was pushed up against the firewall. Why did my airbags not inflate"??"!!!!!
