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.

Seat belts do not extend properly on my 2001 Hyundai Tiburon. I contacted Hyundai and my local service center and they said my vehicle was not covered under the existing recall that was issued in 2001 despite this vehicle having the exact same problem as described in the recall # 01V345000. The seatbelts snag and will not extend out properly to be used. It catches in the guide ring and you have to get out to correct the problem.
