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.

MKZ 4-cyl

Front passenger seat belt warning does not does not light up or beep for around 4 blocks of travel. If most accidents happen close to home this could be serious or even fatal. The dealer says it is this way with all the other models he compared mine to. This does not make a safe situation. The driver's warning works right after motion begins. The passenger's belt warning should work the same way. The owners manual states it will light and beep if not connected and the seat is occupied.
