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.

1- I was driving at 55mph(55 posted) on route 38/Lincoln highway in West Chicago, il and as I approached the intersection an individual did not yield and turned in front of my path. I put on brakes probably about 10-20 feet before I made a high speed impact with his passenger side rear wheel and quarter panel with my front end. My car took the impact on the front end and my airbags did not deploy. I believe I hit the other car at about 50mph and it seems that my airbags should have deployed. My car was deemed a total loss and was not repaired by the insurance company because the frame was bent and broken. I do not know if it would have helped but my neck was injured in the collision. My safety restraints worked properly luckily.
