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.

Although my car is not listed on the airbag recall, I am concerned my car might have the airbags from takata. The year the takata airbag recall started is 2000. My car is a 2002 Subaru Outback. The 2003 Subaru Outback is on the takata airbag recall list. How can I make sure my car's airbags were not manufactured by takata?
