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 own a 2006 Mazda5 and the seatbelt base connector fell apart, literally collapsed and all the pieces of hard plastic came off leaving an unlatchable metal plate. I cannot afford to fix the thing because it is too expensive for my single mom fixed budget of 3 kids and no work because I attend school full time.
