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 have a Mercedes Benz C230. Saturday my air bag deployed in the passenger side back seat after leaving Mr. Bubbles carwash. My fiancee drove my car to the mercededs dealership nearby and they shut off airbag system until I could bring my car in for inspection. Monday morning I called to have my car scheduled for maintenance on Tuesday for the deployed air bag to be repaired and for the system restraint malfuction light on the dashboard to be repaired. The service advisor said that there was damage to the tire so they were not going to warranty this problem. To be honest, I am not satisfied with that. Why would an air bag deploy even if there was a tire problem? I am scared to death to go over a speed bump at this point.
