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.

We were driving on the interstate and my five year old son was quiet all of a sudden. He was sitting behind the drivers seat in a booster seat, seat belted in. He managed to grab the center shoulder strap of the center seat belt and wrapped it around his neck. He had begun to struggle trying to free himself and the seat belt tightened. I called 911 and at the same time was waving cars over to see if anyone has a knife I could use to cut it. Finally a gentlemen pulled over with a knife and I cut the belt to free my son.
