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.

Subject: Passenger side air bag activation sensor comments: I have a Nissan Versa note 2014. When my wife is in the passenger seat (she weights 104 lbs) the "passenger air bag off" warning light stays on, indication that the air bag is not activated. The dealer says the system is designed that way to protect children, and that the weight sensor for the light is set at about 150 lbs. In accordance with federal standards. Can this possibly be true?? I maintain that this is a product design defect if the safety of a small (circa 100 lbs) adult is not protected.

Front passenger air bag stopped activating when there was an adult in the seat. The light displays showing it's disabled and the air bag warning light is constantly flashing on the driver's side control panel. Not sure if timing was coincidence or not, but this started happening immediately after I placed a 12-pack of soda on the seat for a few block drive home from the store. It disabled the air bag while the 12-pack was on the seat, and then it never re-engaged for an adult in the seat. Repair appointment scheduled with the dealership.

Her car has been claimed as a total loss. She struck her face on the steering wheel resulting in a black eye and closed head injury. Her airbags never deployed anywhere in the vehicle.

While traveling out a country road, I was coming up to a stop sign at the bottom of a hill. When I made an attempt to stop, I had no brakes what so ever. I could see that there was no traffic coming from either direction so I made an attempt to make the turn on to the roadway but had no steering either. With no way to control the car I ended up going straight through the stop sign, across the road, through a tree stump and into the side of an abandoned house. With the impact the airbags did not come out even with an impact great enough to cause suspension damage along with other major body and structural damage to the front and passenger side of the car. This is the second time with this vehicle the air bags did not come out, the first is when my husband hit a deer head on at 55mph and air bag sensors had to be replaced due to them being triggered. About a week before, I lost power steering while making a low speed turn but car quickly recovered. The dash and radio has flashed several times on and off and while attempting to accelerate from a stop the car acts as if it has no power and shutters before finally picking up speed. The dealerships service department stated that there is nothing wrong with the car and would send us on our way and when asked about the non air bag deployment they just stated that sometimes it happens, well now it has happened twice.
