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.

2003 Honda Pilot center seating position 2nd & 3rd row. Seat belt system does not fit adult ( in my experience, 1 woman 5'8" and 1 woman 5'10") or child in a booster seat (both highback and evenflo right fit booster) properly. Shoulder straps cut across neck just under jaw bone. Shoulder strap is not able to be positioned at center of collar bone and in some cases does not even make contact with collar bone (child in evenflo right fit booster). My concern is that if the seat belt does not fit properly occupants will put seat belt behind back or under the arm. I am a cps technician and purchased this vehicle a few weeks ago, not realizing this situation. I had only checked the installation of a britax super elite in the center seating position before buying the vehicle.
