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.

Rear shoulder belts was beginning to fray under normal use. Right rear shoulder belt was fraying more than the left side, equal use on each side. Dealership informed consumer they cannot repair at no cost to consumer because it was no longer covered under warranty. Please provide any additional information/attachments.

We have problems installing a carseat in the rear paasenger sides. The shoulder straps do not lock, causing the carseat to flop around. Trying to install a toddler carseat was impossible due to the seat belt not being long enough nor would it lock. We have called the dealer in our area several times to help find a solution and they were not able to provide us with any information on how to fix it. We need a way to install the carseat backwards and can not do so.
