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.

Involved in a near head on collision. Back third seat, seat belt (lap and shoulder) failed to tighten on impact. Victim then proceeded to hit his head on the dvd option case then whiplashed front X2 and back X2. Later it was discovered most of the seat belts in this vehicle do not properly secure anyone in position due to not tightening up when latching or on impact. The seat belt latch but does not pull back to tighten and on impact it did not tighten to secure the person on impact. This person is no diagnosed with post concussion syndrome or mild traumatic brain injury. Had the car veered in a different direction and rolled, his diagnosis could of been more severe or death.

Took vehicle for annual safety inspection. The inspector stated that the commonwealth of Massachusetts has told inspections to check rear seatbelts of Dodge Caravan because they are failing at an alarming rate during accidents. My rear seatbelts failed the inspection. I took car to dealer who ordered new rear seatbelts and installed. The new seatbelts were defective. With the newly ordered seat belts not working, I believe that a strong case for a defective product exists. I filed a claim with Chrysler for the amount to replace 4 seatbelts and an explanation of why the new seat belts were defective. The case manager has been less than helpful, often rude.
