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 a passenger in the back seat of my '05 Scion when we were rear ended at low impact approx 15 mpr. I immediately felt intense pain between my shoulder blades from the impact of the frame around backseat and headrest area. I have been receiving treatment for my injury ever since. Had it not been for the metal frame within the back of the backseat, I would not have any injury. The manufacturer needs to know that if an adult sits in the backseat, they are in danger of possible injury if rearended. And the injury is from their seat construction, not whiplash.
