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.

problem #1

325 6-cyl

A friend sat in the passenger front seat of my car and pulled the seat belt out - a bit further than normal, but not that far (she weighs about 65kg, so she is not obese in any way). The air bag light subsequently came on and would not go off. The repair shop said it was necessary to replace the entire seat belt assembly ($510) in order to repair. This was done and the light went "off" once more - for three months. The light is on again. This is a safety issue and I have been told that as long as the light is on, the air bags will not deploy in the event of an accident. I maintain this is a manufacturer's defect that needs attention as it impacts safety.
