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: Has the power steering started to show signs of failure in the 2014? Yeah, a little. Am I confident it will become a bigger problem over time? Yeah, a lot.

The contact owns a 2014 Ford Fusion. The contact stated that the middle seat belt in the rear seat was locked and would not pull out. The vehicle was taken to a local dealer where it was diagnosed that the seat belt was locked and needed to be unlocked. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 45,000.

The driver side seat belt will retract and lock for no reason under normal driving conditions. Attempts to fix the problem while driving consists of removing the seat belt letting it retract all the way up then try to buckle it back in place. The last time about a week ago the remedy did not work, and the seat belt remained lock in the retracted position and would not release. This forced my wife to drive home without a seat belt.

Inside the rear passenger side seat belt broke. A piece of plastic and spring came out, it was like it caught on something and just fell out. It happened while I was pulling the harness out of the latch. Very little pressure was on it when it broke. It appears to be a horribly bad design.

I just leased a 2014 Ford Fusion titanium and after driving a few days, I realized that the seat belt is always running on my neck (driver's neck) - no matter what adjustment is set for the driver's seat and / or for the seat belt fixture, the belt is always running over my neck and I don't feel safe with this driving condition. I took the vehicle to the dealer (tom holzer Ford in novi - mi) and the problem was acknowledge by the service manager - "this is the way the vehicle was designed and there is nothing that we can do about it" he said. I also contacted the Ford customer service (complaint # [xxx]), because I don't feel safe driving a vehicle with the seat belt on my neck, and Ford also told me that cannot do anything. Bottom-line: It seems that the Ford Fusion 2014 has a serious design problem in regards to the driver's seat belt positioning, that is creating an unsafe driving condition, and Ford is not doing anything about it.
