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.

I was traveling on South bowens mill rd. In douglas ga when a vehicle that have on their turn signal involved me hitting the back of her vehicle. There wasn't much damage to her vehicle but my vehicle was damaged severely. The airbag should've came out but didn't. in 2015, I received a notice from Nissan stating that there was a recall on Nissan airbags, so I immediately took my car to the Nissan dealership in tifton, ga. I'm not even sure if they replace the defective airbag or not because the dealership was about to close when they began to work on my vehicle. My appointment was at 9am and I didn't get out of their to closing. The employees was ready to go about the time they began to work on my vehicle. However, looking at the damages to my vehicle, the airbag should've came out but it didn't. I will be submitting photos of damages.
