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.

Once back seat passenger is buckled in to seatbelt, belt sticks and will not give. If passenger leans against the head rest, they will have to undo the seatbelt to be able to move at all.

problem #1

Dec 012003

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,100 miles
One of the rear seatbelts is defective - it will not click with any of the belts.assenger seatbelt 'ratchets' when pulled out all the way and will not allow the passenger to move forward without first unbuckling the seatbelt, letting it fully retract and then fastening it again. Quite often this has to be done while the car is in motion.
