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 mechanism used to tighten and loosen the integrated child seat harness strap was too accessible to the toddlers who were able to access the device and tighten/loosen the straps. It nearly caused serious injuries to the children, but was noticed in time to prevent it.
