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.

I bought a car recently that had been in an accident and repair (restored / salvage title). Found out later that there is no air bag on passenger side and no air bag squib on driver's side air bag in steering wheel. Also air bag light bulb in dash has been taken out. Seller never told me about any of this. He works with (sells vehicles for) the body shop that fixed the car after accident.
