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.

Takata recall I don't know that this is a takata issue, or if we even have a takata airbag system in our vehicle. However, for the last three months our airbag light has been going on. We have been turning it off by doing the synchronized key turn method, where it would work for a few days or weeks and then the light would come back on. We took it into a dealer, and they are replacing the "airbag module" because it is defective. We took it to elhart automotive in holland, mi and it is completely covered under the warranty. However, we wanted to submit this as an issue because the VIN doesn't get a hit on the takata recall, however there is obviously an airbag issue - whether it is isolated or a part of the takata thing, is above my paygrade to know or understand. We want to make sure if the 2014 Nissan Versa should be on the recall list, that it is appropriately addressed.

Me and my spouse were rear ended last night at a red light. Neither of the airbags functioned and her seatbelt didn't hold her to her seat, causing her to impact the dashboard with her face. Her nose is broken and she also has hematomas on her eyes and forehead.

I want to know who manufactured the airbags in my 2014 Nissan Versa sedan and my spouse's 2009 Nissan Versa sedan. I believe they have not been recalled for the airbag but I am aware from good press reports including nytimes that many vehicles have the same or similar takat-manufactured bags to those recalled and at least one fatality has occurred in such a vehicle. I have searched and the only information online I have found is the list of recalled models. If mine is not there, I still have a right to know who manufactured the airbag and would appreciate the NHTSA supplying such information. Alternatively, how do I get the carmaker to inform me of the airbag manufacture? thank you for your assistance. I am very pleased that an Agency such as yours exists.

I was leaving work on private property and a 19-year-old hit the side of my car on passenger side with her manual truck. Nothing deployed, she slammed me very hard and the car should be totaled, it is over half what the car is worth at this time. Body shop repairs are 5,658 plus another $500 for deductible, plus $282.92. The car is not worth that much and should have been totaled. Now, I have problems with it on a constant basis.
