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 own a 2001 K2500 hd Silverado extended cab pickup. The problem is that the passengerS seat belt will lock up and not release its tension until the seatbelt is released and allowed to fully retract, and then refastened. The seat belt tensioning system has been replaced once with no improvement. The dealer reports that the unit is working as designed. However I believe that the design is defective in that the system should not lock the passenger in place until the seatbelt is released and allowed to fully retract, and then refastened. This problem creates a safety issue in that if an accident occurs while the passenger is resetting the seatbelt, the passenger is likely to be injured. This condition also makes it less likely for the passenger to be willing to wear the seatbelt.
