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.

2003 Dodge 1500 Ram truck - 2 of the 3 rear seat belts have malfunctioned, and will not allow car seats to be secured. The part broken is a plastic piece near the male end of the seat belt buckle. This is not my very day family vehicle and in fact it is rare for me to use this vehicle with car seats. After contacting the dealership and Chrysler Corp. I was told to pound sand. They insisted that I pay the the diagnosis fee before they review this for re-call review process. This may be a wide spread problem amongst Chrysler products. While the fix for me is simple, a $2 part at the kids store...the seat belt assembly it's self is quoted at $110. Many other people may not know the belts are defective or the remedy require to over come this. Chrysler and my local dealership (dishman Dodge of spokane wa) do not care about children's safety. I was never asking them to pay for this. Rather I was asking them to look into this to product children that ride in these vehicles.
