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.

What idiot determined that a yellow warning light concerning the status of the passenger-seat airbag should be on 100% of the time? what possessed that same idiot to require the color yellow for such light(s)" why can't the light be dimmed, or even able to be switched off" at night, such a light on the dashboard is a visual distraction. It constantly pulls the driver's attention from the road ahead. The lights are a safety hazard. Once the vehicle is in motion, no one is jumping in. If there is a passenger when the vehicle is in motion, that soul is not jumping out until the vehicle comes to a halt. Logically, there is no need for the light to be on all the time.
