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.

My son was the passenger in a head on collision with airbag deployment and his eyeball was severed by the airbag. My son received his prosthetic eye for his 18th birthday.

Air bag light kept coming on, was advised this would have to be replaced. I feel this should be something that is within manufacture standards. The car has never been in an accident, thus why do I have to spend $542 to have a drivers side air bag replaced?

I have a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. The air bag warning light displays check air bag. The dealer says it has to be replaced for $650. The same day the left rear window fell down and the cost to repair is over $500. Neither the airbag nor the window have ever been used. The car has never been in an accident or off the road. Two parts failed for no reason.
