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.

2004 Suzuki Verona ex developed problems with the seat belt equipment. The rear seat belts would become too tight to withstand around one's neck. The dealer stated when the seat belts were pulled all the way out, they would enter the ratchet.

I purchased a new 2004 Suzuki Verona in Dec of 2004. I have a 6 year old who by law must be in a belt positioning booster seat in the rear seat. This vehicle is completely incompatible with every booster seat on the market. The rear "seat bite" is too narrow and the seat belt (receiving end) is too short. I brought this serious problem to the attention of the dealership (huntington Kia/Suzuki on long island, NY)they were of absolutely no assistance. In fact their advice was completely contrary to all manufacurer's instructions. I then contacted Suzuki Corp. And was told there was no remedy to my problem. They do not manufacture seat belt extenders for the rear seat belts (which may or may not be a solution"?") I have sent a complaint to the ntsb who referred me to the NHTSA this is my 2nd correspondance with you.

Both passenger and driver rear seat belts lock up. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection and the mechanic was able could not duplicate the problem. When the rear passenger moved the seat belt became tighter and tighter to the point where the passenger could barely breath. The manufacturer was called twice but they didn't provide any assistance.
