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.

2009, 2010 head rests are so uncomfortable I am actually developing lower back pain for the first time in my life. You have sacrificed permanent disabling back problems for a safety issue. The head is pushed to far forward, straining my neck. I am a tall woman so I sit up straight unlike a man. I am in a chronic state of discomfort because of the new head rests. We have decided to lease a car versus purchasing a car because of this serious issue. We were going to purchase a new GM vehicle but can not because of these new head rests. I have shopped all car makes, Toyota, Chrysler, Subaru, and all the seats are impossibly uncomfortable and create either a neck ache, lower back ache, or both. Please change your policy on this issue, no one wants these cars they are so bad. Even my 28 year old daughter tried some and said she will keep her older car going before she would sit in cars made so uncomfortably.
