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 stated the passenger seat belt tightened up to an unbearable tightness and the only way to relieve the pressure was to unbuckle the seat belt while the vehicle was in motion. Also the air condition blew hot air, the mechanic found the ac cycling switch faulty.

Just purchased 2003 4 door Chevy Silverado with latch system. Tried using system with evenflo base unit but latch belt does not fit properly due to the belt tightening unit becoming to close to plastic holder allowing belt in slipping over base unit.
