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.

The contact owned a 2013 MINICooper S. while driving approximately 30 mph on a hill, the driver drove down a small embankment, crashed into a barbed wire fence, drove into a pasture, and crashed into a tree. The tree fell on top of the vehicle. The side air bags did not deploy. The driver sustained multiple injuries to the left side of the body and brain injuries, which required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a body shop where it was deemed destroyed. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure.

Cooper 4-cyl

  • 42,630 miles
VIN: [xxx] airbag system malfunction warning lamp came on android stays on. Vehicle was being driven on interstate when the warning lamp came on. Odometer reading when the warning lamp came on was: 42630 miles. Called MINIcharleston of savannah and also MINIcustomer service and was informed that theory is no recall for this particular VIN despite other VIN's of the same model being affected by an airbag sensor malfunction. Am now faced with the potential for the airbags to inadvertently deploy during normal driving, or the airbags not deploying in the event of a crash. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Cooper

  • 37,500 miles
I was involved in a car accident on 10/15/2015 which I rear ended a pickup truck. I was going roughly 45-50 mph when the truck in front slammed their brakes which caused me to crash into his rear end of the truck. The front of the car is in bad shape and luckily I was not injured. However, the airbags in the car did not deploy which I find very disturbing.
