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.

I don't remember everything because I was airlifted. I ran a stop sign and myself, my grandson, and my daughter-N-law (my grandson's mother was in backseat) and my great grandson in car seat were on our way home coming from near columbus ga. According to the data recorder from the truck all our seat belts were fastened. Another vehicle hit my truck and my grandson was ejected and killed..his seatbelt failed. I failed a complaint with General Motors in November 2013 and they turned it over to esis to handle. I have yet to hear anything as of today August 6, 2014. I never got a recall on this either. Even though they have the data report stating seat belts were fastened, they will not respond to my emails. I have emailed [xxx] and other executives and nothing has been done. Needless to say, General Motors is a multi billion dollar company who cares about noone. I hope you will respond to my email. I won't even begin to tell you how devastated our family still is. Something needs to be done. The vehicle was totaled. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Prepared on behalf of my father, who is the primary driver. On 2/22/2014 it was noticed that the airbag warning lamp became illuminated. Dtc indicated concern in driver's seat belt pretensioner circuit. Additional diagnosis also identified that LH rear speaker was inoperative as well. Wiring harness was inspected, identified fractured wires within the conduit boot between LH rear access door and body. The access door on this vehicle is opened and closed approximately twice per day. Basic online research identified many consumer complaints for this exact condition. Additional research through NHTSA consumer complaints identified a minimum of 15 unique complaints which identified wiring concerns, on extended cab vehicles between the access door and body, resulting in incapacitated SRS systems. 10 of the 15 identified complaints specifically identify; broken, cut, or disconnected wiring failures. This failure occurs through normal operation of the vehicle. Please investigate the trend that is evident for this safety concern.
