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.

Car hit the rear wheels of a flat bed tractor and trailer truck going approximately 25 mph. Driver's seat belt came undone.

problem #1

Apr 172009

Grand Am SE 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

Driving on the highway at 65 mph, and the bolt from the seat belt latch came off while driving

home from work. I had to hold my belt down all the way home. Why in the world would a bolt be attached to the seat? Why wouldn't they attach it to the floor like older cars. I could of been in an accident, and have this coming apart?!!!!would of be very serious. I could of went right at the windshield. I called the dealership and even contact Pontiac about the problem. They said that there was nothing they could do, except get it fixed. I shouldn't have to pay for their lack of safety..... Be careful when buying new cars
