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.

Hello, 2nd row seating. The lower anchors of the latch system are not large enough to properly clip the buckles of certain britax child seats. When viewing the child seat's latch buckles from the sideview, it resembles a sperm whale's head. The latch part of the buckle is the mouth of the whale, the upper (larger) part of the buckle is the head, and the narrow part would be the lower jaw. If both buckles of the child seat are manufactured with the narrow part facing down, then the clips will latch properly. But if the clips are manufactured with the large part facing down, then the clips will only fit either by clipping almost vertically (parallel to the seatback), or by twisting the buckle upside down. So, it is the "hoop" part of the anchor that is not large enough. Note: We have several britax child seats where each seat's buckles are mounted differently on the seat itself. One seat has both buckles with the narrow sides down, another with the narrow sides up, and one seat with the narrow side of the buckle up and down. Need advise. Thank you! (related vehicle information: Model year=2010, make=Ford, model=Flex).
