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.

The driver side seat will not anchor properly. When you accelerate, the seat slides backwards. Also, when sitting still, if I extend my legs, the seat slides backwards. I notified the dealer and he said several similar problems had been reported. No recall has been issued. This problem could cause the standard transmission vehicle to lurch forward and crash into another vehicle. I think this is a serious flaw in manufacturing and needs to be looked at. Several times I have accelerated from a stopped position and the seat has moved all the way back to the rear of the car. I have not had an accident, but have temporarily lost total controll of the vehicle. I will bring the vehicle into the shop on 5/7/00 to correct this problem. You may want to look into this report for future recall consideration. Sincerely w. bruce mcdonald &aj
