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.

Airbag warning light on the dash blinked on and off. Private garage and dealership identified faulty part as a clock spring in the steering column. Was told part is no longer available. Manufacturer did not make enough parts for replacement. Not available new or used. I asked the dealer to contact the manufacturer to see if they have a fix for the problem. No response. So vehicle no longer has working airbags. Is the manufacturer not responsible to back up the safety of their vehicle airbags?

This vehicle was involved in a mva where it hit the broadside of a minivan (T-boned) that ran a red light through an intersection. The truck was going in excess of 20mph at the time, when I contacted the mini-van no airbag was deployed. I suffered hits to my head, whiplash related damages, damage to my shoulder and right leg. The impact caused significant front end damage to the truck, the engine and body were damaged to the point where I was not able to drive the truck and engine was inoperative. No airbag deployment.

My truck was hit on front right side and spun my truck around. My whole front end fell off, including my head lights and radiator support. Both radiators were crushed. The front tire wall along with the radiators were pushed into my engine. With all this damage, my air bags never deployed. Both officers on site advised me to look into this matter.
