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 pushed the lever on the front drivers side seat to allow passenger entry. The seat came forward as it is designed to do. The seat is now in the forward position and will not lock in the driving position. Your form is showing fire and not seats problems, which is the nature of my complaint, and I do not know how to correct this!!
