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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I was pulling S onto hwy 515 from hwy 382 in ellijay, ga when a car hit my drivers side passenger door. On impact, my seat belt buckle broke releasing me into the vehicle causing multiple injuries. I was taken to piedmont mountainside hospital. I had rib fractures; chest wall contusion; severe cervical and lumbar spine sprain'severe whiplash; and left hand laceration. I was prescribed narcotic pain med; muscle spasm med; med for inflammation. Next went to kaiser urgent care for severe back spasms. Muscle spasm med changed to stronger med; again next week changed again. Mom had to come from tn; to stay with me so my husband could work; I couldn't get up and down myself & had to sleep in recliner downstairs in my living room for 3 months. When swelling finally reduced mri showed no spinal fluid from C5-C7 discs; surgery scheduled for May 28 for Fusion. May 1, my husband was fired from his job; separation notice stated 'released without prejudice' we no longer had medical insurance; but got it from marriott at cost immediately and had disc Fusion on May 28; still in physical therapy. On medical leave of absence Mar 3-July 28; my position at marriott had to be filled I had to await another position, apply for unemployment. GM would not discuss this defective seat belt issue because the car was totaled and I no longer had it. I tried contacting an attorney, but they did not take my injuries seriously and even though I gave them the exact location of the vehicle and they agreed to do an investigation they did nothing and my car was sold from co-part. My main concern is that anyone who still has a Chevrolet Aveo know that this happened. Allstate and I have pictures of the damaged seat belt. I have finally recovered enough to go back to work. My greatest fear is that another seat belt buckle in another Chevrolet Aveo could break and someone could get killed.
