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.

Driving up a road and the seat belt stuck and started to pull in tighter and tighter where it left marks across daughters body. Called onstar, turned car off, called 911 and seatbelts wouldn't release to undo so we cut the seat belt to get her out. It happened once, and two days later the front tightened on me and never touched brake to make it do that. Working with Pontiac to replace belts in car 2 months later. Taking forever to do.
