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.

Child was sitting in back seat and reached over to unlatch seat belt to get out. Seat belt layed across his chest, and when tugging on it to snap it back in position seat belt rapped around child's neck. Child's mother pulled on seat belt which would not release. Child blacked out, and several men could not get seat belt to loosen. Seat belt was finally cut to release child. Child's neck was bruised and irritated. Dealership was of no help, and refused the right of consumer to speak to a supervisor. Manufacturer was contacted, and will order a new seat belt. Also, will call the dealership.
