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.

2008 Subaru Forester Owner Comments

I own a recaro signo convertible car seat that was manufactured in November of 2008. I am having issues with the center pull strap that tightens the shoulder straps of the car seat. Since buying this seat new, I have had to replace this center strap 3 times due to it fraying and either ripping off, or locking up and not allowing the seat to be fully tightened against my child. Recaro has always been quick to replace the strap, but I feel like there is a defect in the design that keeps causing this strap to fray after normal use.
