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 was in an accident yesterday morning on the way to work. There was an accident on route 10 East, parsippany, NJ in the left lane. I was driving and did not realize that two cars had just got into an accident and were at a complete stop. They did not have their hazards on. As I approached the cars, I slammed on my brakes and hit the one car straight on going about 35 mph. My air bag deployed but never inflated. My car is a mazda6 2005. I brought the car at Saturn of tomsriver, NJ as a certified pre-owner vehicle. My car is currently being assessed by my insurance carrier. I will notify them not to touch the air bag in case you are going to do an investigation.
