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 stated that the 2001 Ford Mustang passenger side seat belt didn't release. On January 1, 2007 the seat belt wouldn't come out of the holder. The contact never noticed this because no one ever sat on the passenger side of vehicle. The lap and shoulder belt could not be worn by anyone on passenger's side, it will not work. She also stated that the driver's side seat retractor only worked if one played with it. The driver's side belt will not retract into the holder on its own. The contact stated that the dealership has informed her that she will have to pay for any repairs for the seat belt. There was a recall 99V250000 on Ford Mustangs from 1999-2000 for seat belt failure she thought that the manufacturer should compensate the consumer in some way for the seat belt failures.

Seat belt activates unexpectedly and is grossly over-sensitive. For example, repeatedly locks-up and prevents driver from turning upper body to obtain reasonable view from rear of approaching traffic when exiting freeway.
