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 safety belt latch has a limited range of motion and doesn't allow for a proper fit for toddler car seats. They have the over the shoulder strap and when you try to securely buckle the seat in place the latch doesn't rotate up far enough to secure the belt. I've tried a couple different seats that would suit our needs perfectly and they can't be used until our child is over 40lbs. The seat we purched is the graco cherished car go, model #8480hg. It sits well in the seat, but can't be latched properly. Is there anything on the market that I could purchase that would allow us to properly secure the toddler/booster seat?
