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.

Seat belts fail to latch on rear removable passenger seats (7 pass. Option) 3 seats usable out of 5. 2nd row rh outer belt will not release from retractor - it's stuck. Inquired with Chevrolet dealer, sadler motors - S.S.M. mi GM said no recalls issued, or will be issued. I took the latch from the seat 2nd row rh outer seat and put it on the center seat so the retractable belt could be used - giving me 3 safe seats. No help from dealer or GM. We have an unsafe vehicle that is primarily used to Transport children to/from school - now we have to limit the children we can safely Transport.
