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.

When the seat was raised back up, the housing to the seat belt buckle assembly was found to have fractured away from the assembly and landed on the floorboard of the vehicle. There was also discoloration in the fractured area of the buckle assembly. A service dealer was contacted, who stated that they did not have authority to replace the part free of charge.

The contact stated they have two defective seat belts. After they had their vehicle for one month, the passenger back seat belt became defective. The second seat belt which is the drivers seat seat belt became defective last Tuesday. They had no problem putting it on, but became trapped and could not disconnect their seat belt when trying to get out of their vehicle. The contacts coworkers had to get her out with a swiss army knife and WD40. No further damage done to seat belt. A mechanic said this was caused by a weak spring. They have been using this seat belt since, but it is not operating functionally. Seat belts are free of dirt and contaminents. No pictures available. The contact also stated that their radio became defective about two months ago. The radio took the juice out of the battery causing battery to die.
