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.

Consumer's vehicle was rear ended by another vehicle while driving at 50 mph while stopping at a traffic light. Upon impact, none of the frontal air bag deployed. Driver sustained a sprained hip, and a swollen knee. The insurance adjuster indicated that the front sensor wasn't hit upon impact and that was the reason why the air bag didn't deploy. Vehicle was totaled.
