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.

Montego

I was traveling at approximately 50 mph when I realized the truck in front of me was sitting still without any break lights. I hit my breaks but I slammed into the back of the vehicle head on. The entire front end of my car was pushed back toward the windshield. My airbag didn't deploy. I would think that with the bumper and grill being pushed back toward the engine the airbag would have deployed. My son and I were both wearing seatbelts and suffered injuries from those. Despite the seat belt I was still thrown forward almost slamming into the steering wheel. I am severely bruised across my abdomen and right shoulder, I have shoulder and neck pain. I can hardly use my right arm and can not lay down with out excruciating pain in my chest and shoulder. My son only suffered minor bruises and soreness. I wonder if I would have been thrown so far if the airbag had deployed. I also don't think my seat belt should have given that much and should have kept me plastered against the seat. The seat belt did lock up and kept me from moving in two other incidents, where I was only sore.
