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.

Quest 6-cyl

  • 53,000 miles
I have Nissan Quest 2004 mini van. 2 weeks back one day my son 7 year old got trapped in the 3rd row seat on the passenger side. We couldn't take him out. If I try to loose the belt the it keep locking finally I had to cut the seat belt. Usually if the belt locksup then if you release the belt it usually frees up but it didn't do it. Luckily this happened when got to back to home and my kids were trying to come out of the van. I think this needs a little attention. I don't know if this is faulty seat belt or faulty mechanism. I strongly believe this mechanism was faulty and there is a possibility of kids getting trapped if they are not properly using seat belts. Mainly if the lock and release mechanism is not working properly.

The contact owns a 2004 Nissan Quest. The contact's son pulled the seat belt across his chest and simultaneously attempted to turn his body, which resulted in the seat belt wrapping around his neck. The contact attempted to release the seat belt and noticed that it had locked, which made it difficult for her to release the child. The child was finally able to be released and sustained bruising around his neck. The vehicle has not been diagnosed by the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 60,111.
