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.

Both rear seat belts have body sealant oozing on them - to the point where one will not budge from the side wall. The other, if you pull hard will release, but it is covered with sticky sealant which one would not want to wear!! I called a Dodge dealership and they told me that they have seen many of these problems, but with my vehicle being over 36,000 miles, they wouldn't repair it unless I paid ~$450. Meanwhile, I cannot buckle my children up. I think that this is a manufacturing defect and should be repaired free of charge. They are fixing this problem on most other minivans because they are under 36,000 miles. Thanks -
