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.

Concerns for passenger's in vehicle, during crash vehicle roll over. While driving a deer jumped in front of the consumer's vehicle. The consumer over-corrected which caused the vehicle to pin counter clockwise. The vehicle then struck a tree splitting it in half. The passenger compartment continued westbound, the passenger became ejected. The passenger compartment continued to roll and came to final rest in a yard. The vehicle's air bags did not deploy and the seat belt did not properly restrain the passenger. The driver sustained minor injuries but the passenger was killed.
