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.

Side airbags deployed randomly while driving down the road. This was not due to an accident or any type of impact. It was a random event. The vehicle is currently at the Saab/Volvo dealership in charlotte, nc where it was originally purchased. They are trying to figure out why this happened and the dealership is saying they will not accept responsibility for repair costs. This is clearly a mechanical problem. The vehicle was in motion on the road at 45mph. We have pictures on our cell phone available.
