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.

Seat belts plastic covers have broken and fallen off, which has made the locking mechanism useless. The seat belts are now inoperable, which has left us with five available seats in a seven-passenger vehicle. The local dealer was contacted regarding a recall notice for the 2001 village seats belts, but I was told that my van did not fall under the recall. The dealers service department referred me to Ford Lincoln Mercury cooperate offices. They were contacted, and once again, I was not offered assistance.
