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 vehicle struck a guard rail head on at 65 mph and the air bag did not deploy, the manufacturer has not examined the vehicle, however a request has been made. The consumer wanted to be compensated because the airbags did not deploy. The vehicle was considered totaled.
