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 rear seat belts do not restrain the passengers due to the position of the shoulder strap. The shoulder strap was too far forward and could not be used to restrain children in the vehicle.

The front passenger seat belt alert system does not function on my new 2011 Chrysler Town and country limited. I hadn't noticed this fact until a passenger commented in surprise that her seat belt was not fastened. This was at the end of a drive across town. I contacted the dealer immediately, and the service manger informed me that Chrysler found in manufacturing that this passenger seat belt alert did not work correctly, so they disabled it in software. He further said that if or when a software update becomes available to fix the problem, I would be informed of the fix.
