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 new head restraints that you require because of the insurance institute for highway safety evaluations have created a head restraint that is not usable. I went to see about purchasing a new vehicle but found with the new head restraint I can not see out the windshield of the vehicle, I can see the hood but the insurance institute head restraint prevents my head from moving to a position to see out the front of the vehicle. The only I could see out the windshield with the seat positioned where I want it was to remove the insurance institute designed head restraint, this is a safety problem created by the insurance institute. I think the research they did is flawed because most of the time people are hit in the rear of the vehicle is when they are stopped and what I see when people are stopped is they are leaning over playing with the radio or cell phone, in a position where their head is no where near the head restraint. Contrary to what the insurance institute for safety thinks people do not sit-up straight when they are driving. Either I will keep my old cars till I die, not helping the economy, or drive a new one with the insurance institute for safety head restraints removed and let the ambulance chaser handle it if I get rear ended. May be they can co after the insurance institute for their great design.
