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.

While cleaning the interior of the vehicle, I noticed that the rear split bench seat would not lock onto the floor mounting points after I had folded it up to clean beneath it and attempted to return it to it's original position. The rear seats are now secured only by the two shoulder level latches on the sides of the vehicle. While inspecting the mechanism it appears that two of the three latch mechanisms have missing or broken return springs. This worries me because I mount my five year old sons car seat to this bench seat.
