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.

1) 2005 mb C230K 4 door sedan vehicle - on board computer reported SRS failure. 2) vehicle taken to dealership to address SRS failure reported by computer. Dealership reportedly repaired under warranty. Failure notice no longer being reported by on board computer. 3) front side collision occurred today 11/12/05 - was hit by another vehicle traveling approx. 35 mph - no airbags, including side impact air bag, deployed on my vehicle, but both deployed on the other vehicle. Note my vehicle, due to impact, was turned 90 degrees from impact to front of my vehicle - police officer reported incident from his experience definitely should have deployed side, possibly front, airbag on my car.
