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.

Passenger side front seat belt retracts only and will not extend, so therefore is non-functional. This is not a case of twisted belt, as we have accessed the part and ensured "flat" wind. My son just bought car. Prior owner says it never worked for several years. Driver's side seat belt is also barely functional. Both present major safety hazards to occupants. Looking on-line this seems to be a well known problem with the manufacturer's design which should be corrected.

If you recline the seat back, and the seatbelt is through the plastic loop attached to seat, it looses tension and fails to restrain you. This can cause serious injury during an accident.
