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 have an 1998 Audi A6, 2.8L, V6, quattro, avant with a 115000 mls and my cars's rear seat, seat belt in (the middle passenger "belt shape, one") seat stop working and it is stuck in its open position about 15"-16" out. After talking to the Audi dealer near home they said, yeah not working but sorry out of warranty, I asked is this a safety issue for this car" they said no! its not! I am not sure about that. Is that ok a seat belt in rear seat hardly used by me break so easy?! I have seen many parents use this seat belt to secure there child's car seat to the car's seat" thank you.
