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 Mercury Montego 2005 premier edition, the left rear seat belt shoulder strap sometimes ratchets up super tight on the passenger causing them to have to remove it let it travel back in and then rebuckle it. I have not had it replaced at this time, because I hardly ever have passengers in the rear seat. But today I had to have my front driver side seat belt buckling assembly replaced as the whole thing, covers fell off, and spring and tensioner failed to the point of not staying hooked together. In other words the whole buckle assembly failed and wouldn't stay latched. Replaced at Ford dealer with part# 6F9Z7461203bb [buckle assembly] to the toon of $250.08 pretty steep price. I guess I am wondering if there have been any other complaints about these belts, as they are supposed to be a so called mandatory worn safety item at all times. If there have been no other complaints filed, I guess I should just maybe let Ford Motor Co. Know about the problem.
