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.

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan has gen-3 seat belts. I would like to have the new gen-4 seat belts installed asap. The gen-3 seat belts are unsafe due to accidental release. I want my car to be as safe as possible for my family and a possible release during an accident is not safe!

My Dodge Grand Caravan has the gen-3 seatbelts. After seeing the investigation on abc news, I buckled up on my minivan and applied slight upward pressure on the belt and barely touched the red seat belt release button with the palm of my hand and the seat belt ejected. I proceeded to do the same with the rest of the seat belts because I have 2 children and would not like to be in an accident and have the seat belts eject because of something hitting the release button. I think if the palm of my hand released the belts, I really do not feel that my family is secure at all in the Grand Caravan. I have told co-workers that also have these type of seat belts and are going to proceed with a complaint.

Belt keeps coming loose from the system, is expensive to replace all the time. I am sure that the manufacturer knows that this is a problem. What is the problem and is the manufacturer going to fix it" or do I get stuck for the repairs again"
