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 MINIwas stopped at a traffic light behind a Toyota 4 runner when I was struck from the back by a careless driver in a midsize sedan who had failed to see the cars in front of her stopped at a red light. The damage done to both the car that struck mine from behind as well as the damage done to the 4 runner were minimal by comparison. The MINIincurred irreparable damage to the front end of the car. My concern is that the airbags never deployed and the driver of the 4 runner pulled me out of the car due to fire he saw coming from under the engine of the MINIbefore long the whole front end was engulfed in flames. The car was declared a total loss. Should the vehicle have caught on fire" shouldn't the airbags have deployed with the gravity of the damage"
