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... as I was driving speed limit (60-65mph) on the freeway at around 11:30pm (10/21/16), driving on the 2nd lane. There was some debris on the road as I hit a pot hole my rear passenger tire pops. I instantly lose control as I see the semi-truck in the 3rd lane (truck lane). I tried to avoid the truck but the car took me into that direction. As my car slightly went under the truck, the trucks rear passenger tires Ram over the top of the passenger side of the hood and my air bags never deployed. As I was under the truck I somehow get out of it and spin out until the car is complete stopped. When completely stopped, I am facing traffic coming towards my direction. Since the airbags didn't deploy it was an unsafe situation. Safety is everybody concerns and at the time my life could've been at risk. No other cars were involved in this accident but me and the semi-truck, but the semi-truck never stopped at the scene.

Vehicle struck highway 99 center guard rail (at a 45 degree angle) on passenger front bumper traveling approximately 65 miles per hour (spin) then reversed spin slamming rear bumper of vehicle into same guard rail. Vehicle has front (driver and passenger) and side airbags, not one airbag deployed. According to the vehicle safety features, the front airbags should have deployed.

I was recently in a car accident where I hit a truck with the front of my car going at least 30 mph and my airbag did not deploy which I believe increased my injury.
