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.

Takata recall. Was notified in July 2015 by letter of airbag recall in my Pontiac Vibe and that I would receive notice when the parts would be available in a reasonable amount of time. I would like to have this corrected so that I may have a front seat passenger ride in the vehicle without fear of airbag injury or death. It is preventing me from utilizing my vehicle for its intended purposes. To date, I have not received any communication about parts availability.

Takata inflators-had to rent a vehicle since not safe for passenger. GM is paying for the car, but I had to buy collision insurance since all I have is liability. Cost is $14 per day and I feel GM should cover this cost too. Still no parts for replacement and I cannot afford ins. Cost. Isn't GM responsible for all asociated costs. This has been on-going since may, 2015, yet I only got the rental on Nov. 25th. The dealer, jerry smith Chevy, has been very accomodating, but they say that GM will not cover insurance. Can you help?
