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.

2010 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

Months ago, driver's seatbelt light would come on, driver would then push harder on seatbelt buckle which would 'click' again (second time) and secure. Recently, driver would conscientiously and purposely note 'click' in buckle mechanism yet light would come on anyway. Driver had to disengage and re click seatbelt 2-3 tries. This morning, the metal component would not lock into the driver's buckle. Driver had to attach seatbelt restraint into passenger's buckle. The alarm sounded, light in dash indicating no seatbelt usage. Driver fears safety, and whether or not this would impede air bag deploy in case of accident.
