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.

2013 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

I do not have the VIN but the license plate is Illinois G985474, a hertz rental. Seat belt (lap belt) bolt not anchored to anything four adults were in the vehicle, pulling out of a parking lot into a busy tourist highway, when the passenger in the left seat in the middle row noticed that his lap belt was loose, although he had "clicked" it in. When he tugged to tighten it, the whole think popped up. We stopped in the parking lot and checked. We could tell plainly that the large anchor bolt at the end had never been fastened down, had never been screwed in or had never had a nut on it. It was free. We drove on with the passenger using the shoulder strap. That short drive was the only time we needed seating for four large adults during this rental. I returned the Armada early to hertz and showed them the problem. The rental agent took note of it. I took good photos of the belt and its dangling anchor bolt before returning the car. I can email these photos to whoever needs them. I think this is a quality control issue with Nissan, not especially hertz. I got the impression from NHTSA customer service that this isn't a big deal, but I think it is highly dangerous. Why have lap belts if they are not anchored?
