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.

Baby trend, Inc. Expedition elx travel system. Model: TJ93412. Manufactured in: 06 24 2012 hh, lot & qty no: 31810809, ser#: cs 413181tj000809. One or both of the plastic locking paws that lock the seat to the base, have a tendency to stay in the retracted position once the seat is removed from the base. The paws are designed to retract when the handle is pulled, releasing the car seat from the base. The problem is easily corrected by taking your finger and pulling the paw out of the retracted position, prior to putting the seat in the base. If this problem goes unnoticed the seat would not be properly locked into the base.

1. this 2005 Acura TL has been taken care of by the dealership for every major and non major fix, including paying the outrageous $125 for oil changes. Just after my warranty expired the dashboard began to crack around the passenger side air bag. I am worried that my dashboard and airbag plate are not safe to drive with. Currently there are 6-7 cracks roughly 8"-16" long. Acura told me there is nothing they can do except charge me $1500 to replace the dash.
