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.

This is an airbag cutoff switch complaint. I couldn't find any other place on your website to lodge it. We got our cutoff swtich authorization almost a year ago. The Subaru switch was to be ready 12/98. Now there's no date even given. This is unfair. You force them to make the bag and us to buy it, can't you force them to make the cutoff switch" they advise we not use a generic. I sometimes have to cram 4 kids in my backseat sharing belts. Is that safe"
