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.

Air bag fault light keeps coming on. This is the fourth time it has come on. First came on 10/2006 dealer replaced malfunctioning R/front side airbag, connecters to harness were faulty as well. 1/2008 came on again, dealer repaired faulty wiring for passenger side. 5/2008 came on again, dealer dio found upper limit exceeded drivers side unit, faulty electrical wiring again. 6/2008 air bag light on again, dealer inspection found wires for drivers side front crash sensor faulty/poor contact. 6/2008 to present my airbag light is on again, have not taken it in yet cause I'm quite annoyed. Something is wrong with the whole airbag system and I pray to god that if I do have an accident all of my airbags will deploy but with all the repairs done I don't think they will. I would appreciate your help
