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.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Owner Comments

While driving my 10 year old granddaughter to school I handed her a water bottle. The bottom of the bottle hit the release button of her seat belt and released the belt. I thought she must have done it and a lecture followed about the importance of keeping the belt fastened. I know now however that the bottle was the cause of the release when it hit the release button. The belt was refastened and no one was hurt, but it upset me that the belt release was so easy to accidentally release.
