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.

Complaint summary: Second row inflatable seat belt stuck in out position. Will not retract. Will not pull forward. Concern that this is a material flaw - seat belt is too thick and too pliable. Doubles over in the retractor and becomes non operational. Major risk of injury as this can happen while the seat belt is in use rendering the seat belt inoperable. This happens unbeknownst to the passenger who would not note the inoperability of the seat belt as it is visually behind the passenger and not in sight line. Vehicle manufactured in Chicago....updated08-28-14 updated 11/12/2014
