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.

5-2-06. 2004 econoline rear seat belts and seat belt extenders are poorly designed. The receiving end of the seat belts are attached to the end of the strap, the other end is bolted to the floor. With use the receiving end tends to fall back through the hole and has to be reinserted often. The manufacturer provided seat belt extenders for the front two buckets seat, but not for the rear seats.

E-350 10-cyl

This unit is a small motorhome with six seat belts besides the Pilot/copilot seats. The curb side belts are ok as they are sixteen inches longer than the street side. The street side are so short that a small child could hardly use them. The seat belts are used in conjunction with two couches in the living area. This was brought to the attention of the manufacturer but was just shrugged off as inconsequential. It is a safety issue and the manufacturer should be made to rectify it. There are numerous units beside the one I have and I suspect they are all similar where two couches are in the living area.
