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.

Accident occurred when large truck pulled across road. I was driving a 1998 Plymouth Breeze and hit truck at approximately 35-40 mph. Car totalled all front end damage including hood, bumper knocked off, both fenders, also damage inside engine compartment. Air bags did not deploy. Vehicle is still at my home at this time until insuarance company retrieves it. I have pictures of damage and interior showing that the air bags are still intact and did not deploy. Apparently, this is not an isolated incident. I searched your web site and found several other airbag complaints for this same make model and year car. I (driver) have injury to right knee that may require surgery
