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.

Ford 14 passenger van had problems with seat belts. The company used the van for occupants that had mental and physical disabilities. The passengers were locked in the seat belts and had to be physically cut out of the seat belts. This occurred 2 of the 5 times. Actually, had to drive van to dealer with passengers locked in seat belts the first time this occurred. This caused fear among passengers and owners. Took van to dealer each time to have seat belts replaced. The problem with the seat belts had been so severe it resulted several trips to dealer for repairs. Dealer did not know why this was happening and could not offer any explanation.
