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.

Notification of faulty seat belt in Chevy Suburban I am writing to notify you about a seat belt defect in our 2006 Chevy Suburban that could have resulted in the injury or death of our 8-year old son. My wife left two of our kids reading in the middle row bucket seats of the car with their seat belts on, and was gone very briefly. When she got back our son was all entangled in the seat belt and was having difficulty breathing because of the tightness of the belt's coils around his lower abdomen. The son later explained that he got entangled when his book fell inside the car and he tried to retrieve it before releasing the seat belt. My wife's attempts to get the belt to release only seemed to make it tighter. She flagged down two off-duty police officers who also failed to get the belt latch to release. In the end, the police officers opted to simply cut the belt and free the boy. We are thankful that this incident had a happy ending, but hope you can look into this matter and take any necessary corrective action.
