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.

Cabrio 4-cyl

I was driving home from a weekend away, I was on I95 North near mile marker $120 traveling about 15-20mph when traffic came to a complete stop, I made a complete stop and the car behind me hit me goin gabout 15mph and pushed me into the SUV in front of me the first impact pushed my passenger and myself forward and then the second impact of us hitting the SUV in front of us pushed us back...both of our seats gave way and we were in lying postions. We hadent even realized what had happened until we sat up from the lying postion. I am assumming that the seats broke and thats why they gave way, I dont think that that is a safety feature and should be addressed as soon as possible. I was driving a 2002 VW Cabrio glx.
