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.

Shortly after I got onto I 270 dublin, Ohio, suddenly the car started swirling and went from the 5th lane ended up in the ditch. The crash was very hard but the air bag did not come out. The axle was damaged and the car was a total damage. No one could figure why this happened or how. I did not get ticket for this accident because there was no speed involved and amazingly did not hit anyone and the result of this I lost my car.

Every since I have had this vehicle off and on I've had this problem, I would try unlock my car door with the key and it didn't open I was at the park with my granddaughter and there was a dog chasing me and I had my granddaughter with me but I couldn't get in so I climbed on the car that's when I first found out. The second time is when I was out with some friends & the car wouldn't open with the key again! that was embarrassing so my friend took me home I had to have it towed because I didn't know the cause, later that day I tried again & it still didn't work, my remote lock stopped working for the car I've replaced the batteries had it checked even purchased another still no luck, had pay locksmiths plenty of times to the point where there were dents across the top of both my doors until I finally had the car painted, ran into the same issue again and noticed that if the car was to hot or cold from the weather this would happen, now I can't get into my car and I have and important training class that I can't miss but I don't have a choice because I can't get into my car, I've also contacted GMC I have a reference number it is [xxx] I also asked if the recall on the ignition the reason why my car does this the rep assured me that it's not & there is no recall on my vehicle at all.

I was coming up the street and could not see the light due to poor visibility. The sun was in my eyes. I didn't not see the red light and ran through it hitting an older Jeep. I was going between 35-45 mph and my air bags did not deploy ever though it was a head on collision. The car needs the whole front half replaced. The bumper cover, actual bumper, bumper absorber, bumper support, headlights, headlight bracket, fog lights, hood, and both fenders. I suffered a concussion and severe bruising from hitting the steering wheel.
