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 contact owns a 2001 Volvo S60. The contact stated that while driving approximately 55 mph, the entire instrument panel failed. After stopping the vehicle and restarting, the panel and the air bag warning light was illuminated. The dealer was contacted and they advised her that the air bag may need replacement. The vehicle was neither inspected nor repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure and the current mileage was approximately 130,000.

My daughter was stopped at a red light and surrounded by cars on a four lane road. All of sudden the passenger side air bags deployed causing my daughter to panic thinking she was on fire due to the smoke and explosion. She exited the car in traffic and called me and the police. Nobody else was in the car at any time and no event inside or outside took place that caused the deployment. Police and Volvo dealer inspected the car and found no evidence that would cause a deployment. Volvo paid to replace all parts and sent sensors to get tested. Test came back indicating there was a definite event that caused deployment. This is why I am reporting this incident, the testing they performed indicating an event took place that caused deployment is contrary to physical evidence collected by police and Volvo dealer and eye witness accounts. Either Volvo's testing is faulty or something worse has happened.
