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.

Consumer stated that she strapped a child in a seat belt in the rear of vehicle. Later on the child became tangled in the seat belt, and each time an attempt was made to release the child from the seat belt, the seat belt got tighter and tighter. The seat belt was so tight on the child's stomach that she had to flag down another motorist, and get him to cut the seat belt from around the child. The child was only 8 years old. This encounter left black and blue marks on the child.
