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 is nothing to serious I however have noticed it and I fixed it myself after a few minutes of tinkering. On the passenger side seat the front bolts that hold the seat in placed became loose. It was only loose enough to create an extremely annoying rattling and clanking noise. I just had to pop off the plastic covers and hand tighten the bolts. Problem solved.

The headrest of my 2009 Honda Fit gives me an extreme neck & backachet. My 2000 civic allowed better seating posture. This is not a seat back position or driver height problem. A side view of new car seats shows almost all headrests break into the vertical line of the seat back. Proper ergonomic seating according to osha can be found here: however headrests on new cars force the spine from a normal S-shape to a contorted C-shape with the head pushed forward. I understand this is due to new regulations from your office. Please bring your regulations into compliance with correct human anatomy. Thank you.
