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.

Outback 6-cyl

I was on cruise control driving the speed limit and a full sized pregnant deer jumped right in front of me. I hit the deer full speed. It did over $8000. In damage to the car, but the air bag didn't deploy. It was like an explosion, and the front of the car was mashed up and head lights knocked out, etc. The deer was cut in 1/2 and flew around the car, but it did not hit the windshield. The air bags did not go off, I repeat, and I'm kind of concerned that it wouldn't work in a collision.

A car stopped in front of me suddenly for a pedestrian, and I rear ended it. My airbag did not deploy and I ended up with a concussion. Having a lot of trouble thinking and sleeping - and finals are next week!
