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 deployed while driving. No accident. No impact. The drivers side airbag deployed while driving in a travel lane, no other vehicles near by, no objects were hit. No indication of impact to the body of the vehicle. The seat belts also have locked up as though there was an accident. It appears to be a malfunction of the airbags. Our concern is primarily that if this is a potential defect in the system that it could be much more serious for someone driving on a busy street or freeway. The incident occurred at a low speed on a city street when no other vehicles were near. If the NHTSA wants to investigate we need to know soon. Otherwise we will arrange to have the SRS replaced.
