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.

Everytime I hit the brakes, the passenger seat belt never holds. Person in the seat always has to be ready when I brake, either hard or soft. Seat belt not doing its work, not locking, not holding. Happens countless times. Took in to the dealer, they say nothings wrong, but if I really have to hit brakes one day, someone's going to get hurt.

: the contact stated while applying the brakes in emergency situations, the front seat belts do not lock. The seat belts retracted, but do not hold the passengers in the seat. The seat belts leave enough webbing to where the passengers could impact the dashboard. The vehicle was taken to the local dealer for inspection. The dealer replaced the seat belts with new ones; however the new seat belts have the same problem.

The contact stated while traveling on the highway going at 55 mph the vehicle hit something in the middle of the highway with the left front tire. The brakes were applied but they did not work. The consumer then lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle traveled into the median and collided with the retaining wall. This was a frontal impact. The seat belts failed to properly restrain the consumer and the air bags failed to deploy which resulted in injuries to the occupant. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop a couple of weeks prior to the accident for an ABS problem. They were unable to duplicate the problem with the brakes. Updated 1/25/2006.

The contact stated the front seat belts did not lock during heavy braking. He tested the vehicle at 30, 50, and 70 mph by slamming on the brakes hard enough for the tires to squeal. The seat belts never locked. This caused one injury to the passenger. She slammed into the dashboard and injured her wrist and back. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, and they stated the seat belts were acting as intended. Updated 01/19/06.
