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 BMW I am driving does not have an adjustment for the seat belt height. The seat belt does not properly fit me as I am 5' 2". it comes across my neck, not my shoulder, no matter how I adjust the seat. It is uncomfortable and may pose a safety risk. There has been no particular incident or accident. I am making this complaint to let you know that there may be a future problem.
