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.

Incompatibility with higher-weight-limit harnessed child restraints and vehicle anchorage systems. Specifically tether anchor weight limits. Most vehicles have a 40 lb. Weight limit for tether anchorage (as mandated in FMVSS 213), while there are several cr on the market whose harnessed weight limit exceeds 40 lbs, up to 80 lbs (specifically the husky, marathon & wizard models by britax). The cr mfr states that the cr must be tethered above 50 lbs. While the vehicle mfrs state a 40 lb weight limit on tether anchorages.
