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 was T boned at an intersection from the right side, by a vehicle traveling 45 mph and the airbags did not deploy! front wheel, both doors, frame, seat, post and suspension were damaged. $10,000 worth. I was temporarily paralyzed from the impact, I received a concussion from hitting the air bag curtain emblem. I sustained head, neck, back, left shoulder and right knee injury. Volvo replied, " the door had to be hit in a very specific place to set off the airbags. I have photos and information needed upon request. Thank you.
