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've experienced problems with the middle row integrated child safety seats. Several times, the tensioner on the seat would not work, and I had to pop the end of the seat back cover off to access the mechanism to free what the belt was caught on. I didn't completely remove the cover so I could see exactly what was happening. Also, sometimes the buckle will not secure the belt plate. It will secure after several attempts, and we've recently noticed that it works better if we latch a particular side first, then the other side (5 point harness). I don't know if the mechanism sticks or if food or something got forced inside. These have both been recurring problems since we purchased the vehicle.
