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.

2009 GMC Acadia Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 252014


  • 30,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 GMC Acadia. While her child was seated in the rear passenger seat, the contact could not unlatch the rear seat belt restraint. After many failed attempts, the seat belt began to tighten across the child causing him to become pressed up against the seat and unable to move his chest. The child began to lose oxygen, which prompted the contact to cut the seat belt from the child. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign number: 14V266000 (seat belts); however, the dealer stated that the failure she experienced was not identical to the one listed in the recall. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.
