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.

Passenger seat belt locks for no reason whatsoever. Passenger must unlatch belt, let it go all the way back in, then put it back on in order to "reset" the lock.

Front passenger side safety belt latch does releases at any given time. It always latches with no problems and appears secure, yet will come undone while driving. This latch releases with ease while driving at anytime. This has become more prevalent now that my kids are old enough to be in the front seat. When testing its security after initially latching, it will come unlatched when tugging on the strap hard. This latch has already been checked for foreign objects and none were found. The Ford dealership continues not to check for defect without charge and am very upset about that. They state that my VIN number is not included in this recall, but definitely has the same problems as the others. I am very concerned with the safety now that my kids are able to ride in the front passenger seat. Since ownership, there have been events every time a passenger sat up front. There have been no deaths, injuries, fires, damage as yet.
