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.

While driving my son (4yrs old) opened car door due to the lack of child safety locks even thought he was properly seated in his car seat.

The contact owns a 2006 Hummer H3. While driving 70 mph, the contact decelerated to 5 mph as he approached a turn. His granddaughter was able to open the rear door due to the vehicle not being equipped with child locks. The contact called the dealer and they stated that child door locks were unavailable. The current and failure mileages were 17,920. Updated 02-04-08.

I own a 2006 Hummer 3 automatic tranny: The driver's door locks automatically, almost every time I get out, and none of the others do; this is extremely annoying.

: the contact stated the rear doors do not have safety locks. When the vehicle is put into any gear the doors automatically lock, but the children are still able to unlock the rear doors. The child safety lock feature is not available on this model, but is available on other General Motors products.

problem #1

H3 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles
: the contact stated while driving at 5 mph the children in the back seat unlocked the rear passenger door. The door handle was raised, however the door remained shut. A few moments later the contact pulled into the driveway. While the vehicle was still in motion, the back door flew open. As a result of the door opening, the child's entire arm was stuck out of the vehicle trying to grab hold of the door. The child was properly buckled in the child safety seat and suffered no injuries. The manufacturer was alerted and informed of the concern over the doors not having the child proof locks during the manufacturing process. Updated 3/20/2006 -
