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.

2012 Nissan Leaf Owner Comments

problem #1

New car headrests are angled too far forward. I do not want to slouch, so I would like to sit with my seat upright. This forces my head into a very unnatural position, causing me pain. Even with the seat tilted back, the headrest still forces my head forward, and creates a difficult driving position with my shoulders slumped forward and my head tilted. This causes headaches & distraction. This discomfort is also true of the 2013 Ford Focus, the 2010 Toyota prius, and the 2013 Subaru outback that I have recently driven. I understand this is an effort to reduce whiplash injuries, but it is causing flexion/overuse injuries in owner's necks!
