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.

As I was driving on the service road a vehicle in front of me stopped short, I steered my vehicle to the leftside of the road to avoid a collision. It was raining and the road was slick causing my car to go into a tail spin. I gained control of my car without making impact to anything and my driver side airbags deployed, although my airbags burst out they did not appear to inflate completely. Also my driver side seat belt completely came out of its track. I suffered a scratch/burn on the left side of my neck and a bruise below my right shoulder from the seatbelt. Ambulance and police were called to the scene. I have a police report, the police commented that they had never witnessed a similar situation of how and why my airbags and seatbelt were in that condition without skid marks or impact.

The contact owns a 2010 Honda Fit. The contact stated the driver and passenger side seat belt shoulder straps would not engage properly across the chest area and it also began to rub against the neck which caused chafing. The seat belt was not inspected by the dealer. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 5. the VIN was unavailable.

Seat belt on passenger front seat in my 2010 Honda Fit sport ratchets and will not release despite multiple trips to the dealer nothing has been done. All the dealer did was say maybe passenger is too fat for the car. We also own a 2007 Honda Fit sport and have not had that issue with that car. The issue appears to be caused by a shorter seatbelt being used in the 2010 as opposed to the 2007.
