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.

2001 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

Front passenger seat belt retention device would not release resulting in squeezing of child wrapped up in seat belt. The seat belt had to be cut with a knife to get child out of seat belt. Even with the buckle unlatched. No medical treatment was necessary but, child was severely traumatized as the seat belt was squeezing her so tight that the adults trying to free her could barely get a finger between her and the seat belt.

On 2001, Ford made the seat belt anchor actually a part of the seat. Normally the achor comes from the side of the seat, now it comes out of the seat. The change has caused a loss of space for larger individuals, especially police officers. The belt achor ends up coming behing the gun holster, making it impossible to buckle the seat belt.
