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.

I was driving on the road at 30 miles an hour, suddenly the car in front made a sudden stop, I pressed the brakes immediately but they failed to work (they got hard when I pushed them) I tried to avoid the crash but it was too late. Air bags popped out instantly, there was no injuries that occurred.
