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.

On the morning of May 2, while it was raining a car that was two cars in front of my wife decided to make a left turn on the highway without any advanced notice; my wife ends up running into the car in front of her and seriously damaging the front of the car. The airbags, however did not deploy. My wife suffered a contusion on her head. My 17 month old daughter was also in the car but was not seriously hurt. My insurance company estimates that the repairs will cost $8000 and the sensors for the airbags was one of the parts that needed to be repaired. The sensor is currently being replaced.
