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.

On Sunday night my 9 year old child was sitting in the back seat of my Honda Pilot. When she tried to put her seat belt on it got caught around her neck. She then turned to try and fix it and it got wrapped again. It locked around her neck and would not release. Even as I tried to lift her to get room around her neck the belt kept taking in the slack. She had to be cut out of the seat belt by a onlooker who had a knife. By that point she had quit breathing. She had to be hospitalized and have numerous tests run on her to access her condition. She has massive swelling to her face and her right eye was swollen completely shut. She has broken blood vessel from her neck up all over her face and even in the back of her throat. She has so many broken blood vessel in her eyes that you cannot even see the whites of her eyes. At the time all of this happened the truck was at a stand still in a fast food drive through.
