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.

The consumer's vehicle was hit on the driver's side door by another vehicle. Upon impact air bags did not deploy. The driver sustained two broken ribs, and was taken to the emergency room to receive treatment. The vehicle was totaled. The manufacturer felt that the impact wasn't sufficient enough to deploy the driver's airbag. (side pushed in 11 1/2 inches)
