The government has unveiled SaferCar, a new public database that will allow consumers to look up the number of alleged deaths, injuries and cases of property damage involving passenger vehicles.

Consumer groups have sought the information, which was part of legislation passed by Congress following the massive recall of Firestone tires in 2000. It required manufacturers to provide data on complaints of deaths, injuries, property damage and warranty claims.

The so-called "early warning" data was released Wednesday following a ruling by a federal appeals court in July that barred the government from withholding key data reported by manufacturers.

The law was devised to help the government quickly detect potential trends in car accidents.
