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.

The headrest is angled too far forward. I am a small framed individual 5'6", 115 lbs. I have good posture. This seat and head rest does not allow me to rest my shoulders against the seat, rather I have to roll my shoulders forward to keep my head away from the headrest causing shoulders and pain so extreme that I feel like vomiting each time I drive; my commute is only 20-30 minutes. I have tried multiple seat positions with the limited 2 adjustments I have to no avail. I have read that the seats are made for larger people with broader shoulders-they will fill the seat and don't sink back into it as smaller individuals do. Such pain is a distraction to driving, my head should not be forced downward.
