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.

Passenger safety belt does not function properly, locking mechanism is too sensitive. Passenger will slightly move forward and seat belt will lock and place extensive amount of pressure to passenger. Only way it will loosen up or release is if person removes seat belt and reapplies it.
