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.

The front seat belts lock up and cannot be used or tighten up to where you have to unlatch them due to the seat belt motor sensor in my 98 Dodge 3500. They are unpredictable and make it unsafe to use them when you do and it is unsafe not to use them. Dodge is very aware of the problem since the have since returned to using manual seat belts but don't want to fix the problem in these vehicles, and charge the vehicle owners to repair the seat belts since the laws require them.
