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 airbag light came on. I was told the airbag will now only work if the steering wheel is straight. If it is turned and I get hit, the airbag will not deploy.

Started up my car and the air bag light went on and won't go off. Also having problems with electrical lights in the dash. Part of the lights for the speedometer/air-conditioner buttons are only 1/2 working and part of the lights on the radio don't light up either. After reading several of these it sounds like this is a big issue with this model of car.

Started the car one morning and the air bag light came on and won't go off. Don't know if this is serious or not. Can't afford to have it checked right now. There is a big airbag recall right now, just wondering if my car could be a danger. Also our temp gauge has stopped working and our radio dash light has went out..maybe a dash board problem with these vehicles
