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.

Rear seatbelt fails to retract, stays out in the fully extended position. This prevents the seatbelt from retaining any passenger using the seatbelt. Have researched many complaints on this same issue. It appears the retract components do not operate properly. This is a safety issue in that you cannot tell when the seatbelt will malfunction.

Rear passenger side seat belt is fully extended and will not retract. The seatbelt is not operable, and is a severe safety concern.

Rear seatbelts fail to retract. I'm waiting on a call from the dealer's service department as to the cost to replace the rear seat belts. I have never experienced this problem in any other car brand. Very disappointed and concerned about cost to replace as car is out of warranty. However, since my two young kids ride in the back all the time I need functioning seat belts. Have seen some other similar complaints at various online forums. Perhaps an investigation is warranted due to the seriousness of this issue.

The rear seat belts on this vehicle get stuck all the way out and will not retract. The car is out of warranty as of this month and the dealer is quoting around $800 to fix this known issue. Having a broken retractor is not safe as we cannot put two people in the back seat of our car. A terrible design to have a seat belt break when very few passengers ride in the back seat except for my child. Please help and put a recall on this issue.

Rear passenger seat belts won't retract. This leaves the belts loose and ineffective while driving.
