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.

Both of the front seat belts do not work due to a sound that happens to the seat belts. The noise sounds like the seat belt exploded. Once this happens, the seat belt tightens around the front seat passenger. This happens without the driver applying the brakes or any sudden impact. The seat belts tighten around the front passengers, causing the passengers to be unsafe. If this happens now, what will happen if there was an impact and the seat belt would tighten what would around the passenger.
