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 have suffered an accident in which I was severely injured by the seat belt. I was in the back, right side with my seat belt on. Because of it I had a ruptured spleen, ruptured sigmoid, explosion of appendix and ruptured cec. Not to mention the horrible hematomas in and outside my abdomen. I needed emergency surgery and 2 weeks of hospitalization. The car in which this happened is a Chevrolet lacetti and the place where it happened is bucharest, romania. I would like to file a complaint against this company because this kind of injury shouldn't happen because of a seat belt. I believe that the design of it was incorrect and they have to do something about it.
