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. Notes: Welcome to North America, Ford Fiesta. Thanks for bringing your herky-jerky transmission, numerous interior quality complaints, and an engine that dies while driving.

The lap band portion of my seatbelt is fraying directly above the buckle. It continues to fray even further each time I fasten my seatbelt.

Seat belt auto retractor has progressively degraded in performance on the driver's seat since ~70,000 miles. As of now, seat belt will no longer retract without physically pushing it back into the housing. Pretensioner still operates correctly.
