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.

Booster seat.... it is a grow with you safety first. The tether in the rear of the seat, has totally braken away from the seat, and also lock and release mechinism sticks. So, when I put a heavier coat on my child, it takes me forever, to get it to release so its constantly squishing her. And of course, she's crying because its hurting her! also, it doesn't sit properly, its always leaning to one side, or the other! it hurts me to think with the issues @ hand, if we were in an accident, what might happen to my daughter! this was not a cheap car seat! a sincere thankyou! Michigan (related vehicle information: Model year=2002, make=Sonata, model=Hyundai).
