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.

Felt as though seatbelt was just behaving "different." Looked at seatbelt anchor and found driver's side bolt was nearly completely unscrewed. Took it immediately to dealer where it was found that both driver and passenger side anchor bolts were stripped! holes were re-bored and new bolts put in. This defect occured with no unusual strain on the belts. Failure was just 2 months after purchasing new.

Clip on seat belt that keeps seat from retracting down in holder fell off. Consumer is using a safety pin in place of the button clip. Dealer has been tyring to order the seat belt from April to August. Dealer has no idea when seat belt will be off back order. By law whole seat belt has to be ordered. Dealer is unable to use any replacement pieces and part when it comes to a safety item. Please the VIN# and mileage to form.
