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.

2008 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

Unsafe to know that my new car has door locks that do not unlock from within the car cabin when the door handle is pulled. Unlike my previous car (VW) whereby the door is unlocked when the driver door (for example) is pulled - door opens or my BMW whereby the door is unlocked by pulling the handle twice. In a Saab, the doors can not be opened unless the "unlock" button is pressed. This is a safety issue since egress can not be done quickly in the event of an accident or other emergency need for immediate egress.
