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.

2002 Pontiac Aztek Owner Comments

Aztek 6-cyl

I was stopped at a traffic signal behind another vehicle. I was rear ended by another vehicle at approximately 40 mph. I was wearing my seat belt. The back of the drivers seat failed, causing me to fall backward and hit my knees on the plastic panels on the underside of the steering column. When I hit the vehicle in front of me, since the seat belt was now slack, the inertia locks were rendered ineffective and I hit the steering wheel, causing injuries to my chest and forearms. I suppose I should be happy that I was not seriously injured or killed, but the failure of the seat back caused unnecessary injuries. I have pictures if you are interested.
