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 was involved in a collision in which vehicle flipped and crashed into a tree. Seat belt buckle on the passenger's side bench seat broke, causing child and infant seat to be thrown to the floor. Vehicle did not flip, it hit water and spun. The buckle shattered and the plastic housing and springs internal to the mechanism broke apart.
