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.

2013 Buick Regal Owner Comments

The front seat head restraints are head "constraints." Both the angle of the braces supporting the head restraints and the thickness of the padding of the head restraints are excessive. When the seat is upright, a position of good posture, the head restraint forces the head down to look at the lap. Raising the head restraint increases the downward angle. Moving the seat-back away from vertical makes the head comfortable but then the back doesn't touch the seat-back and that position is rather tiring. Much of the time, the solution is to lean forward or to the right or to the left away from the head restraint to avoid discomfort and blocked vision. The 2013 Buick Regal has taken the head restraint criteria to excess and it would be helpful if modifications can be considered so that future head restraints are no longer a hindrance to drivers.
