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 went and had my children's car seats inspected by our local injury prevention and highway patrol, to make sure they were correctly installed. I have a forward facing convertible car seat that also has the option for a five point harness which I normally used, because my child was not big enough to use the booster yet. This specific seat, I use the latch system. I learned that for my child's weight, they would no longer be able to use the five point harness and need to use the booster seat function with the rear drivers seat belt. When we went to buckle the belt, we noticed that yes, the lap portion had a locking device so it would not slip, however where the shoulder strap attached and came out of the back panel, did not have the safety stop when tugged on quickly. We tried multiple times to see if it would lock (in the case of a collision). It did not. I then tried the rear passengers side with only the same result. Both driver and passenger's in front did work. I did not see any recalls due to this specific concern.
