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.

My five year old son was getting into our van and walking toward the rear row of seats when he ran into the seatbelt that crosses over from the rear side window and was entangled. The seatbelt was so tightly wrapped around him that it would not move in either direction so that I could get him out. The only way that I could get him out was by cutting the seatbelt. We have had similar incindents when getting in and out of our van and going to the rear row of seats.

I own a 2001 Chevrolet Venture warner brothers edition minivan. In the past nine months the seatbelt from the first seat in the second row has gotten stuck in the sliding door, causing the door to be jammed shut. My concern is it could be clothing or fingers or toes next time. In order to get the door open it had to be taken to a repair shop and pried out. This sliding door is suppose to stop and reopen when an object is in its path. Please look into this matter as I have five small children and I carpool with more. Thank you.
