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.

Driver's seat suddenly locks in position so that it will not side forward or back. Since the driver needs to move the seat back to get out of the car and forward to reach the pedals to drive, she was not able to drive the car back from running errands.

I just started driving my car longer distances to work and my neck and shoulders are killing me. Upon further research it is because of a terrible decision for "safety" how can it be safety when driving every day injures your back and neck. I turned the head rest around backwards and it is slightly better but for someone my size (5'1" woman) it is terribly uncomfortable to drive with these head rests. I plan on straightening the curve myself this weekend. Whiplash has to be better than this. Please test this safety bs on humans and not just crash dummies. I would seriously need a chiropractor if this continued.
