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 contact stated the SRS light came on intermittently. The first time he took the vehicle to the dealership, and they were unable to diagnose the problem. The second time, they replaced the retracting spring in the passenger's side seat belt. The problem recurred. The dealership replaced the clock spring in the steering column and the retractor spring in the seat belt. The vehicle is currently at the dealership being repaired.

Seat belt tensioner on driver's side has failed twice. The first time at 27K miles & the second time 1 year & 5 days later at 43K miles. When it fails the air bag light comes on & I'm told this means that the air bag has been disabled thus possible severe injury if a crash occurs. Warranty is 12 months or 12K miles.
