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.

I bought my Jeep to be a safe family vehicle and instead I worry every time I get behind the wheel because I buckle my seat. I have been in a head on collision before in a Jeep Wrangler and was fortunate to be okay, now this vehicle's seatbelt unbuckles itself during driving, and when pressure is being applied. I know that it is not "user error" because it happens to every person who has driven my Patriot. How am I supposed to feel safe with my infants in the car when I can't even feel safe with just me in it?!
