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.

While driving along a local road, the vehicle was maneuvered abruptly to the left to avoid wildlife. The rear seat occupant stated that the seat belt "broke". after investigating it was found that the driver side middle row passenger seat belt stitching failed at the point where the belt loops around the anchor point mounted to the floor. The seat belt had pulled free of the anchor point.
