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.

problem #1

The driver side and passenger seat belt retractor fails to retract. The driver side has some retraction left and passenger side has none left. I found the recall notice from June 2014 however it only mentions the convertible model while my vehicle is the station wagon. The recall should be expanded to cover other models that have the same issue.
