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.

The seat belt latch release on my 2002 Toyota Camry fails to "pop out" after un-fastening (releasing) the seat belt. This could lead to an un-safe condition since it could appear that the seat belt was latched when it was not. I was told be the dealer that it would cost $140. To repair this condition. I said that I thought this was a safety matter and should be repaired at no cost. I understand that some other car manufacturers warrant seat belts for the life of the car and make such safety repairs at no charge. Why does Toyota charge for repair of such safety devices? thank you for your attention to this matter. I look forward to your reply.
