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.

Complaint received via E-mail. I would like to document what I believe is a safety hazard in my vehicle. The second row of passenger seats is split whereby the end seat folds down and slides forward for entry to the rear row of seats. We have a six month old baby who rides in a car seat which is attached to the center of the second row of seats. She rides in the car seat facing rear, and she can stick her arms out on either side. When went to exit the vehicle, our older son slid the second seat forward, and it hit her out stretched arm, bending it backwards. She screamed and we immediately removed her from the seat. She appeared to be fine, but I am concerned for the future. There would be no danger to a passenger facing forward because the worse thing that could happen is the right arm would be bumped forward. However, with a rear facing baby, any impact from the forward sliding seat, can cause the arm to bend backward and break.
