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.

Seat belt is very difficult to use, per consumer. If belt is not pulled all the way out, it will lock up even when not in motion. Belt could lock around seat prior to connecting with the buckle requiring seat disassembly to be removed. In addition, individuals with 30 inches or longer backs receive inadequate protection from head rest at tallest position.
