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.

2006 Chevrolet Express 15 passenger van the van is equipped with 4 bench seats. The first three benches seat three people and the last back bench seats four. This leaves a very small walkway to access the seats from the door. The seat belts for the outer positions of the bench seats are affixed to the side walls providing shoulder belts for these seats. These belts have two buckle ends on each belt. The clip on the end of the belt spans the walkway and attaches to the walkway side of the bench seat. The other sliding connector then is attached to the other side of the occupant providing a shoulder and lap restraint. Once connected, this buckle is not intended to be removed it lacks a usable button to disconnect the belt. It does have a small rectangular hole in the front to stick in an object, flat screwdriver, or such to disconnect the belt. With this configuration the occupants of the front bench can enter or exit the vehicle without being impeded. The occupants of the remaining seats are forced to transverse the belts of the seats in front of it as they enter or exit the vehicle. This configuration produces a strangulation hazard for 10 of the 15 occupants in the rear of the vehicle as they enter or exit the vehicle. This problem can be compounded in an accident situation.
