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.

Bought this car used and the seat belts have always been a hassle. They don't retract and get shut into the doors as a result. Once you pull them out they hang out until you take the time to get them pushed back in, which is not easy to do.

When you jusmp into the driver's seat, or the front passenger's seat, do NOT get into a hurry when buckling up. The seat belt chronically jams and twists at the shoulder harness, making it imPOSSIBLE to finish buckling up until it is UNjammed. And, if untwisted incorrectly, then multiple twists in the belt remain. This means that next time, jamming is even more probable. Extremely difficult to unjam/untwist.

If I filled out this form everytime this happened, well I wouldn't have time to breath.
