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.

My wife and I were traveling on bangerter highway in South jordan, Utah. For some reason, there was a latch failure on the hood of the car. There had been no warning, no rattling of the hood, no shaking etc. The hood simply flew up and smashed into the front windshield. This left me (I was driving) with no frontal vision. I was able to pull off the highway safely; but I do not know how I did that. The windshield was shattered (glass shards all over us), the hinges on the hood bent and caused a gash in the fender on each side, the hood was dented, and the top of the car near the windshield was also dented. I can not determine anything I could have done differently which would have saved me this awful situation.
