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.

My car has an electronic trunk closure. With this feature, when someone kicks their foot under the rear bumper of the car, the trunk lid opens or closes automatically, assuming he or she has the car fob in his or her possession. My wife has had the trunk lid close on her head on two occasions while taking items our of the trunk. She inadvertently engaged the automatic closure while leaning into the trunk. The first time, the trunk lid hit the back of her head, the second time it hit her forehead. In each case for several days following the accident, she had headaches and swelling at the point of contact with a black and blue mark on her forehead the second time. She took medication to relieve the headaches and applied ice packs to reduce the swelling of her head. While my wife is ok now, she could have been more seriously hurt by this poorly designed car feature. This represents a safety hazard in the automobile.
