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.

This addresses the failure of the seat tilt adjustment lever due to a structurally mounting shaft.

This was a poor GM design where the shaft strength was removed from lever mounting shaft by making cross hatching cuts to end of the shaft which removed the material strength of the shaft and the shaft failed structurally.

Eventually the shaft fractures and the lever falls off the shaft.

Never corrected!
