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 contact stated the passenger and rear seat belts tighten as soon as they are put on. They are so tight that there is not enough room for the passenger to turn on the radio. The dealer, where she purchased the vehicle, states it was the way the vehicle was manufactured. Another dealer told the contact it was made that way so that a child safety seat could be put in. She informed him there were airbags, and he then stated she could put a rear facing seat there. No repairs have been made to the vehicle.
