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.

NHTSA — Seat Belts Problems Seal Of Notes: The Pontiac Vibe is the mechanical twin of the Toyota Matrix.

2007 Pontiac Vibe Owner Comments

It has just came to my attention that the rear seatbelts are positioned too high and too far forward to protect children sitting in a backless booster and for smaller adults. The seatbelts would not provide adequate safety in a crash because they do not even lay against these persons' bodies. They are around their ears instead of the shoulder.
