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 placed the child inside of the booster seat, the booster seat shoulder belt guide had an opening inside the loop, that would catch on the seat belt. Please fill in additional information. If the booster seat is on the drivers side the seat belt slides out of the loop. The seat belt guide loop slot slants in the same direction that the seat belt retracts pulling the belt out of the guide loop. The only way the seat an be safely used is on the passenger side of the vehicle because the loop slot slants in opposition tot he seat belt retraction.
