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.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Fusion. The contact was driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle suddenly swerved into another lane. The brakes locked when pressure was applied and the vehicle began to spin uncontrollably. When the brakes were engaged there was a clicking noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle would not slow down and accelerated up an embankment and into a dirt mound. The seat belt failed to secure the contact and caused her to forcefully strike the windshield area. The contact sustained eye, neck and back injuries. The air bags failed to deploy during the crash. A police report was filed. The vehicle was severely damaged and towed to a collision center. The failure mileage was 41,096.

The seat belt does not stay snug against the hips due to the lack of a manual adjustment. No mater how many times I try to make it snug, it works its way up toward the belly. It also does not hold me in place in the set during sudden maneuvers as a manually adjustable seat belt buckle would.

Customer feels that the seat belts and the side air bags are a hazard and are not safe in a rollover* the consumer stated the seat belts are not safe in a rollover due to the incorrect assumption that the roof will remain intact. The consumer also stated the air bags are not helpful because occupants may have their heads thrown against the side windows by a previous maneuver or impact, before a side impact, only to have their necks broken by an inflating air bag. The head restraints have supports that are too weak to prevent injury in a severe rear impact. The consumer wanted to share his continued concern with the safety of automobiles.
