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.

We were recently in an auto accident. Though we were only going about 30 mph our child's anchor strap ripped free from the screw that secured the strap to the car seat base. This caused my child to be thrown sideways in the seat.

We have a 2 year old boy that slid the chest harness apart. (it is easy) to take off his chest protector in the car seat. He was sitting in the back seat of the car beacuse of front air bags. He then rolled down the window because I forgot to lock the windows out again. He then had his head and shoulders out the window. All this happened in a matter of seconds. I had to pull the vehicle over and have my older son sit in the back with him. The chest clip on the cosco touriva slids apart on one side easily. Then the child can take the strap off the shoulders and pull themselves up and out. It is not a safe design for a curious toddler. Also on my century it has the same clip. They both have overhead pads to put their arms on. I hope this problem can be investigated. Thanks.
