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.

Caller was at a stop sign and when he started to take off. He hit a dip and both front air bags deployed. Dealer said there was not recall, but caller said there was a recall on the air bags. Manufacturer has not been contacted yet.

The air bags could not deploy because the computer that controls them was out of service S indicated by warning lights on the dash. The first time the fuse block was replaced the car was fully functional except that the controls ot the master brain were not working, hence the safety concerns. The second time it was replaced the car just died, which of course could strand someone.
