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.

Driver side air bag alert blinking. Nissan claims no recall and states that they must replace the air bag in order to run diagnostic tests. My car is in perfect working order so my question to you is; what constitutes a mandatory recall" must consumers wait until there are a certain number of incidents before it is determined a faulty part"

So I was driving my car at night and it was raining that day. My speed was 40mph when I was making left turn on a highway, and then all of sudden one of my back tire on the right pop. My car goes out of control and made 180 degrees turn. So I end up rolling my car. Luckily their was no one coming from other lane. At the end I was surprise that none of my airbag deploy. Also my car got total.
