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.

Vehicle has 6 way power seats and a lever which adjusts the seat back to a straight position. When leaning against the back of the seat it causes the back to collapse backwards. The seat back fails to stay locked in the upright position. Manufacturer is giving the consumer $500 towards modification of the seat. To correct the failure the seat has to be ergonomically sound in an upright position. But if this is done the consumer's head will be hitting the roof, per the modification repair shop.
