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.

2004 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

Shoulder clips on integrated child safety seat pull apart with very little force, without depressing release tabs. Dealer replace part, however, the problem persists. Dealer states that this is "normal" and that all vehicles they checked do the same thing. Similar clips on other child safety seats (non-integrated) that I checked do not pull apart without depressing release tabs. This is my second complaint filed. I was told with the first complaint that someone would follow-up. I have heard nothing in almost 1 year. I am unable to use seat due to fear of failure if I were involved in an accident.
