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.

My wife's 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 extended cab pick-up truck was hit forcefully from behind, driving her vehicle into the vehicle in front of her. She had her seatbelt on, but she still struck the steering wheel with her face - causing a broken nose and severe bruising. It appears the seat frame bent enough to allow her move forward. The seat had to be replaced during the repair process. She is not a heavy person (5 ft 9 in tall and 125 lbs). I contend that having the seatbelt anchored to seat frame provides insufficient structural support.

2005 Silverado truck, interior of truck caught fire in the middle of the night when family is sleeping. Believed to have started in power seat motor only days after a new battery replaced. Wiring problems versus defective instrument that drew power off the battery to begin fire?
