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.

Drivers seat belt keeps coming unlatched for no reason while driving. Nothing is stuck inside. I latch it and tug hard to make sure fully latched. Then after a few minutes of driving, it releases for no reason. My best friends 2006 F250 also has the same problem.

On several occasions, without any reason, my driver-side seat belt has unbuckled itself while the vehicle is moving (speed does not seem to be a factor). After experiencing this a few times I began inserting the buckle and jiggling it and pulling it to make sure it locked firmly before driving. Even after having done this, there have still been times when it unbuckled itself while driving. If I get into in an accident the seat belt may not offer any restraint/protection.

At random intervals, with no provocation, my seat belt will unclick itself. After I re-buckle, tugging on it will not cause it to release. However this has now happened four times since I bought the vehicle 3 months ago.
