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.

On occassion the driver's seat belt has stuck in a locked position such that you cannot pull it out and secure it. Also, the passenger side has tangled and not retracted properly. I had received a recall notice number 00034. I turned this card into joe macpherson Chevrolet and after several weeks and calling back I was told the part was in and to bring my car in so the repair could be made. I did. That was in January. For a while it worked fine but lately the driver's seat belt appears to lock and I cannot secure it and have had to drive without a seat belt. Sometimes it works fine and sometimes it simply won't release. Today I took my car in and told them about it, that it was still locking and not working properly. The advisor, david brunn (7173) told me if I wanted to pay for a new seat belt they would fix it. I again explained that this was a safety item, a previous recall that although repaired was still not working correctly. He became very defensive.
