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 consumer was involved in a major collision where the vehicle flipped approximately 6 times and ultimately crashed into a wall. The front driver and passenger seat belts had come unlatched. The vehicle hydroplaned after hitting water in the road, spun around 5-6 times, flipped back to front, hit a rock wall, and flipped on its outside.

Clips in the seat belt designed to keep the metal latch in place fell out, resulting in unraveling. Dealer notified and replaced seat belt. Both front seat belts also do not retract properly; on occasion, the seat belts will not pull from their housings at all.
