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.

My 9 year old son unbuckled the left rear seat belt (where he had been seated) after I parked the vehicle in my driveway. Somehow he became entangled in it when he turned around in the seat to look in the cargo area. The belt became wrapped around his stomach as he struggled to free himself, and because the belt would not release, but kept getting tighter and tighter, there was no way to get him out of it. I had to get my sewing scissors to cut him free as the belt wouldn't give us any slack, but kept reeling in, getting tighter and tighter. I'm concerned that some child may get one of these belts wrapped around his neck. Once the unbuckled belt is reeled in, it won't give any slack until it goes all the way in. If someone gets entangled, and there isn't a knife or scissors handy, I'm afraid there will be a fatality.
