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.

The airbag on the drivers side near floor upon impact broke my ankle. The auto hit on the passengers front side. The accident happened when I tried to avoid hitting a cat and hit a telephone the best of my knowledge the impact should not have been so severe as to break the ankle causing a plate, rod, and several screws to be placed in the ankle, both sides had stitches approximately 8 to 12 inches. Now recently I had to have some of the hardware removed, causing me to lose more time from work. I have complete set of pictures of auto and surgery.
