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.

Center row sliding bucket seat (passenger side) does not lock into place. I have taken this vehicle in for the same problem 6 times (2 times to salinas dealership and 4 times to seaside dealership) w/O having it successfully repaired. The seat will appear latched, but is not truly engaged. With an occupant in the seat it will slide forward when the brakes are applied, creating a dangerous situation for the center seat occupant and the front passenger. This defect was there from the beginning, noticed after we purchased the vehicle. It did not develop over time, so the incident date will reflect the purchase date of the vehicle.
