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.

Seat belts never retracted completely. They remain loose around the entire vehicle, often hanging out the door when anyone exits the vehicle and is caught under the doors. Also, does not retract properly around baby car seat. Sometimes hangs loose. Nissan has and unreliable parts and service department. So far, I have been lucky and no one has been hurt in my SUV. It seems dangerous to me.
