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.

Driver seat fails to lock in place. When I accelerate the seat comes loose and moves to the full back position and locks. Or if the seat is adjusted again and I brake, the seat moves to the full forward position.

Driver's seat moves back and forth and will not lock in place. Vehicle accelerated and seat flew back on acceleration. Vehicle has been in at dealer one time for intermittent problem. Dealer was correcting the problem. Consumer stated that the tilt wheel control froze in one position, dealer adjusted tilt steering. Center console hard to open, dealer adjusted console.

The seat failure just occurred while my wife was in the truck. The seat unexpectantly shifted back while drivng in heavy traffic. This created the potential of a severe accident with multiple injuries. We have taken the truck in for repair.
