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.

I just bought my car 7 months ago from locklear. Current mileage on it is about 43,000 which puts me right outside my warranty. I haven't had any problems with it until recently. I noticed when I would unbuckle my seat belt that it would tend to get stuck in the buckle. A few days later I'm leaving my house to drive to town and my seat belt wouldn't click into the buckle no matter how hard I tried. I check out the buckle and apparently the piece inside of it broke and now I can't buckle my seat belt at all! this is a huge safety concern because I always wear my seat belt in case of an accident and it's a costly ticket if I get pulled over. I called my dealer and they say the cost of just the buckle alone was 200 and the labor would be expensive too because it will take more work to take the seat completely out. Total is nearly 350 just to replace a buckle! unfortunately I don't have that kinda money to spend so I can't get my buckle fixed or wear a seatbelt :(
