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.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign numbers: 16V651000 (air bags, seat belts) and 16V209000 (seat belts). The dealer scheduled a repair, but when the contact arrived at the dealer, he was informed that the part was not available and the vehicle would need to be kept for 5 to 7 days. The contact would have to sign a waiver to release the vehicle. The dealer provided no accommodations for a loaner vehicle. The manufacturer was not notified. The contact had not experienced a failure. Parts distribution disconnect.

I received a recall notice from GMC that the flexible steel cable that connects the driver's seat belt to the outboard side of the seat (the "tensioner cable") can fatigue and separate over time as a result of occupant movement into the driver's seat. I received a second notice that the parts are now available to repair my vehicle. I scheduled an appointment accordingly and checked with the dealer prior to arrival. I have now been waiting for well over 2 hours and I just found out that the part is not in stock and the recall can not be fixed. I have attached the work order and my receipt which shows that the work was performed when in fact it has not been completed. I am now at risk and have no trust in the dealership service center.

GM seat belt recall was performed but the dealer at GM's direction hacked the interior trim piece to correct defect. This is a different fix than they perform on the unsold models and is not acceptable or ethical on a truck that cost +30,000.00

This is in regards to safety recall 15822 (www-ODI.NHTSA.dot.gov/acms/cs/jaxrs/download/doc/ucm517394/rcsb-16V209-2391.pdf) for GM Sierra 1500 trucks. The repair is extremely poor and requires the dealership to mutilate an interior piece of the vehicle by cutting it with a razor blade. I wouldn't have had this safety recall completed if I knew ahead of time how poorly GM would have made the repairs. Please keep in mind, this experience is shared by everyone who has had this recall performed, and many people are opting out due to the poor handling by GM. Also, to make things worse... GM will properly repair their own vehicles if they are unsold, or on the dealer lot. Instead of hacking up the interior, they replace the trim piece with a brand new part. This is done so that their new unsold vehicles don't have the heinously cut up interior piece that would obviously turn off a buyer. I believe GM's solution for new and currently owned trucks should be the same. Current owners should not have to accept this extremely poor solution from GM. If you do not accept this poor solution because you do not want them to hack up your truck, they require you to decline the recall. GM needs to have an acceptable solution for current owners, like they have for their unsold trucks.
