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.

Seatbelts, in cars& pickups of today, the clip on the right side is under person setting there, no way to fasten seatbelt. In older cars & pickups it stuck up where you could fasten it, in my wife's car I cannot fasten it, just can in my pickup. Also the new driving lights, ((add ons)) when pickups comes up behind you, no way to see, it blinds you. Reason death rate has fallen, !!!! people can't afford gas to drive as much!!!!!!!!!! less miles, less deaths. Hope you do something seat belts!!!! I've paid my last ticket for no seat belt. If I have to I'll file a civil rights case next time I get a ticket, get seat belt law threw out. I think belts save lives, but they need to be made safe to use!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, thank you, have a nice day.

I am a chemically sensitive individual having been poisened 9 years ago. I did not recoginize the hazards because the dealership complied with my request to not detail car with chemicals, but the off gassing of the plastics, vinyls, carpets, materials and ? (I do not know if I have over looked something else) has caused muscle pain, headaches, nausea, fatigue, passing out at the wheel, weakness in my limbs, internal cramping and eczema on my hands. The seat is totally incorrectly designed for shorter people and the adjustment in the seat does not work to compensate causing extremely lower to mid back pain so severe it causes difficulty in walking, sitting and nausea. The dealership and the manufacturer are not willing to take responsibility for the inadequate, unsafe condition of the product.
