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.

2005 Mazda Tribute Owner Comments

problem #2

The lower anchor strap on my son's sunshine kids radian xtsl spontaneously loosened with no pressure on the release button or locking device. As a cpst, I check the installation daily, so I know this had been a rock solid installation and the locking device was properly aligned on the shell of the seat (not in or on the edge of the beltpath), prior to the strap spontaneously loosening. (related vehicle information: Model year=2005, make=Tribute, model=Mazda).

Super latch strap continually loosens. Seat has been installed by cpst and when barely touched, the adjuster buckle loosed to a very dangerous point. Seat became extremely mobile while latch was still connected. I have two radian xtsl seats. One child is barely 20lbs, and the other is 35lbs.
