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.

Earlier today I was involved in a car accident on my 2013 Scion Xb. My car's front bumper and hood are completely damage, along with the side fenders, the radiator is also broken and out of place, even the frame is a bit bent. The brakes too a bit longer than usual to kick-in and the person in front of me made a sudden stop 'causing a rear collision on the person in front of me (whom by the way took off before I even got out of the car). Airbags did not go off (at the time of the accident I was with my 1 year old), luckily my son and I are safe but I'm things could've gone either way, I don't feel confident that my family and I will be safe driving this car and I was wondering if you could look deeper into it (wouldn't want it to happen to anyone else).
