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 consumer was rear ended by another vehicle. When this happened the front seat belts failed to lock. The consumers vehicle was pushed into another vehicle. The passenger sustained minor injuries. The incident took place on October 5, 2005, and a police report was taken. When the consumer took the vehicle to a dealership they checked the vehicle. At first, the dealer said that the seat belts were alright. Then, he test drove the vehicle with the contact, and the seat belts worked on/off. Afterwards, he thought that the seat belts were not suppose to lock when being hit from the rear. The dealer said that the contact should turn vehicle over to the insurance company.
