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.

I have tried 4 different car seats and still do not fell safe with the fit they have in this car. The seat inclines and without a towel or something under the car seat you can not install a rear facing car seat. I do not find a towel very secure since it slides and the seat is therefore not in place for long: That is not very safe. I bought a special car seat with a rear tether that can anchor from the rear of the seat to the frame of the car, but the Nissan service center told me they could not install it; they didn't want to assume any risk if the frame could not hold the seat in place in the event of an accident. Had I know I was going to have such a problem, I would have chosen a differnt car; one in which a child seat was more secure in.
