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.

Rearended and shoulder strap from seatbelt didn't lock, I bumped my head on the steering wheel, and sprained my left shoulder; heating system popped on at impact and now it won't blow.

problem #1

L200 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,800 miles
: the contact stated the bolt that held the rear left seat belt to the frame of the vehicle detached from the frame, rendering the seat belt useless. 5 months prior to this incident, the same situation occurred with the rear right seat belt. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the dealer determined that both seat belt assemblies needed to be replaced entirely. There were no immediate repairs made. The manufacturer was also notified, who offered a rebate of 100 dollars toward the repair of the assemblies. Updated 12/15/2006 -
