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 #1

  • 1,400 miles
The automatic passenger airbag sensor does not operate properly. My wife weighs about 120 pounds and the light goes on and off at random on the highway are just sitting still. The dealer has zero solutions and we are following the instructions in the manual which states the weight threshold to be 80 lbs. If we're in an accident and her airbag doesn't deploy there will be a problem. Vehicle is an 2011 Mazda Tribute.
