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.

My wife and son were involved in a head on collision and the passenger airbag did not deploy in our new 2013 Toyota 4runner. My wife was almost at a stop because she had seen the vehicle in front of her get hit by the same driver. The driver never put on brakes and hit my wife head on at about 40 mph. Two airbags deployed for my wife from the steering wheel and under the steering wheel. My wife and son both suffered whiplash and bruising from seat belts. My son weighs 95 pounds. My wife received burns and cuts on her legs and arms from the airbags. I contacted Toyota and they started a claim to find out why my son's airbag did not deploy. It has been 25 days since this occurred and the third party that was supposed to come out and collect edr information has not done so as of today. The car was undrivable after the accident and was towed to a body shop. The insurance company has said that the vehicle is repairable even though it has frame damage, major front end damage, and airbag deployment with an estimate of $12,000 in damage.
