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.

Shoulder restraint fails to lock, it continually retracts while driver is wearing it. With every movement seat belt continues to tighten restricting any movement of your upper body. Driver restraint is very dangerous. The driver is forced to make a decision as to whether wear the shoulder restraint and cause an accident or not wear it and be in danger as well as breaking the law! although the retracting mechanism squeaks all the time, the retraction difficulties are intermittent. The problem started when the vehicle was less than 3 years old, but General Motors refuses to repair the seat belt under warranty because the vehicle has 49K miles, despite the obvious hazard to the vehicle owner and others sharing the roadway at the time.
