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.

The seatbelts' mechanism that requires the seatbelt to be fully retracted before it can be pulled out again is ultra sensitive. Almost every other time my children attempt to buckle the seatbelt, this mechanism is activated and I have to pull the belt out of the booster seat, remove the booster, allow the belt to fully retract then reinstall the booster and then attempt to buckle. Beyond a total annoyance, I never imagined this problem would endanger my children. On July 10th, my son attempted to buckle his seatbelt, but became entrapped when the seatbelt mechanism engaged and continued to tighten around his 40 lb body trapping him in his booster. I have a photo for review. It was so tight we almost had to cut the seatbelt to free him. We were barely able to slide him under. There is no manual release mechanism. The belt must be fully retracted to release it. This is alarming and dangerous, especially in conjunction with booster seat use. The booster seat prevents the seat belt from fully retracting. Please contact me for the photo.

Child operated button too close automatic rear passenger door and reached behind for seat belt. It was dark and the child was feeling around for the belt, when the door closed on child's hand and crushed fingers. This was in the rear part of the door, next to where the seat belt anchor is. Child was screaming and parent operated driver side door open button to release hand. Fingers are badly bruised. There is no warning that fingers can get caught in the rear, so it was unexpected. There is also no automatic release similar to that when an obstruction is encountered in the front part of the door.
