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.

Grand Am 4-cyl

Consumer was driving through a school zone going less than 25 mph and cruise control kicked in. The vehicle crossed into oncoming traffic and went down an embankment. The vehicle hit a tree and it wasn't until the vehicle stopped that the air bags deployed. When the air bags deployed they blacked the passengers eyes.
