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 sincerely hope this will reach the right person who will assist us to get our car fixed. I received recall notice GM#14491A in July 2015 warning me that the passenger air bag inflation device may explode and cause serious injury or death to the front passenger. The warning states not to use the front passenger seat. It is now October 2015 and the on-line information on the recall states there is no fix yet for the problem. We cannot use our car to its fullest potential and will not use it to Transport our grandchildren. We are approaching 90 days without the full use of our vehicle. My wife feels the car is unsafe and hesitates to drive it. I cannot buy another vehicle and we need our car. Can someone help us?
