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.

2015 Ford Fusion Owner Comments

Approx. 32K miles. Car had been parked for about 4 hours on level surface street. Sunny day, about 80 deg. F. upon starting the vehicle to drive, the drivers seat belt was seized in retracted position and would not extend. After jerking on the belt 4-5 times as hard and quick as possible the belt has freed up for now; however, I have no idea if this will be a recurring problem or a common problem. Vehicle details: 2015 Ford Fusion SE hybrid.

The driver's side seatbelt won't extend while the car is off. It locks up. Because the seatbelt won't release, I can't fasten it into the buckle. Because I can't put-on the driver's side seatbelt, I can't drive the car. The seatbelt also locks up while I'm driving the vehicle, so I can't move around freely to reach the control panel. This happens so frequently I had to have it towed to the dealer because I can't drive without a seatbelt. The dealer can't reproduce the problem. I contacted Ford, and they said because they can't reproduce the problem, they can't help me.

Air bags did not deploy in crash. Dealer repaired said vehicle and seat belts work sometimes as well as instrument panel. Vehicle constantly pulls to the right. Dealer says nothing wrong. Other issues but not safety related.

When my petite wife sits in the passenger seat the airbag remains off. She is 5'1, approximately 100lbs. The dealer stated the car was designed that way and did not want to look into the issue. We had the same problem with our 2010 Subaru legacy, though I never reported it. Is this correct" are the front passenger airbags for this car designed and tested not to go off for someone her size"
