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.

I was utilizing my vehicle for a child safety installation class. During the class all three of the rear seating positions were utilized for installation of child safety seats. During installation, following the instructions outlined in my owners manual, all three rear seatbelt locking latch plates broke. I had this problem back in 2005 when I installed my daughter in her car seat in the right rear seating position. Back in 2005, the right rear seatblet position was repaired under warranty. Each of these times a small piece of plastic breaks off, resulting in the seatbelt latch plate no longer being able to lock. This feature is only utilized to lock the seatbelt during the installation of a child safety seat and had I not been some-what mechanically inclined, I might have not realized the seatbelt had been rendered inoperable for safe installation of a child safety seat.
