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 was driving to work at 5:30 am in the morning and all of a sudden my side air bags deployed with the laud noise. my left ear is still ringing and feels very heavy, for what I have read so far I was some how the lucky one people have died because of the air bags deployed without any reason. and more driver side window just fell after the incident and left window passenger is no longer working. Took the car to the dealer they want $4600 to repair the issues which should have been fixed and paid by FORD. I will be looking for attorney to take the case to court.
