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 was alone, preparing to get on the turnpike access road when a car/van hit the right front passenger side of my car. Details of the accident were recorded many hours after the crash. I was never asked to provide details. My car rolled over twice down a steep-angled but shallow embankment and then righted itself upright. My seatbelt was fastened and snugged but at no time did the retaining function engage.the seatbelt functioned like a bunji cord. And the airbags (neither front airbag) deployed until many minutes after the crash, as I was sliding across the front seat and console as I began to exit the passenger side. I was and am still injured, have lost much use of my left wrist and hand, suffered a blow to the back of my head which temporarily left me deaf. I still have severe contusions of the left and right legs, and abdomen both externally and on the inside of the abdominal wall.
